Poland, 1939, 106 minutes
In Yiddish with English subtitles
This tale of family disintegration and poverty serves as a metaphor for the displacements facing European Jewry at that time. One of the last Yiddish films made in Poland before the Nazi invasion, the film tells the story of a mother’s persistent efforts to support her family in pre-WWI Polish Ukraine and the family’s eventual immigration to the United States in search of a brighter future.
Introductory remarks and a post screening discussion will be facilitated by Diane Everman, Archivist and Curator of the exhibition, “Untold Sacrifices: The St. Louis Jewish Community in the Great War.”
Please RSVP by calling 314-442-3711 or by emailing AGoldfeder@JFedSTL.org.
