Lodz Ghetto: The Classroom Version
Lodz Ghetto provides a microcosm of how, in the middle of this century, a war was raged against Jews. It takes us inside a single community, one of hundreds that were gradually destroyed. Diaries and photographs reproduced in Lodz Ghetto, along with notebooks, journals and official memoranda, suggest remarkable human endurance and the struggle for life, culture, intellect, family, religion. These are stories of survival and what it often took to survive - to believe in a future even if that meant denying the present reality. (HS+). B/W & color. (104 min.)
