The Jews of Poland:
Five Cities (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.  Available in two versions, the original Yiddish language version or one with a new English narration.


"They are of great value because they preserve, in moving pictures, part of the material culture and public life of Polish Jewry...would go well with Image Before My Eyes."

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.

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.

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!

Profile of an Artist: Moriziu Gottlieb
Polish Jewish artist Moriziu Gottlieb died tragically at the age of 23, over a hundred years ago.  During his brief career, the man regarded as the "Jewish Rembrandt" attained lofty heights in the art world.  Through a detailed and vivid description of Gottlieb's work, the atmosphere of life in nineteenth century Eastern Europe is masterfully captured.
