JEWS OF POLAND: Bialystok, Lvov, Krakow, Vilna and Warsaw
Between 1938 and 1939, filmmakers Yitzhak and Shaul Goskind visited six Jewish communities in Poland in an effort to record the vitality of Jewish life. Little did they suspect that their film recordings would be one of the last visual accounts of a once vibrant world. Five of the films survived, through the efforts of the Steven Spielberg Jewish Film Archive in Jerusalem, are finally being made available to the public. English language narration. 50 min.
IMAGE BEFORE MY EYES
Prior to World War II, Jewish Poland was a rich civilization, the largest and most important center of Jewish culture and creativity in the world. Josh Waletzky's remarkable documentary about Polish Jewry in the decades that preceded the Second World War utilizes a skillful mixture of rare film footage, memorabilia, photographs, music and interviews to portray a rich and varied way of life. Produced by the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. "Warm and evocative."-Los Angeles Times 90 min.
PILGRIMAGE OF REMEMBRANCE: JEWS IN POLAND TODAY
Of the three and a half million Jews who lived in Poland on the eve of World War II, only 6,000 remain. Who are these people? How do they view their Jewish identity? What is their relationship with the Polish people and its institutions? Filmmaker Yaron Shemer provides a contrast between a once thriving society and a community today of bones and stones. Filmed in over fifteen different cities and villages. Winner of the Cine Gold Eagle Honorable Mention Award, American Film/Video Festival 48 min.
ROUTES TO ROOTS: REDISCOVERING JEWISH POLAND AND UKRAINE
Filmmaker Sy Rotter takes us to Poland and Ukraine with noted genealogist Miriam Weiner, who has organized a tour for a group of Holocaust survivors and genealogists searching for their roots. Access to important materials had previously been "off-limits," but now with the help of local archivists, they are able to locate hundreds of family records and track down ancestral homes and burial places-one group member even finds a long lost relative. Most exciting! 29 min.
