Zegota: Council For Aid To Jews In Occupied Poland
Using archival photographs and film footage, together with interviews, this film narrated by Eli Wallach, tells the story of the desperate plight of the Jews in Poland and the conditions of terror under which the Zegota rescuers tried to help. More then 40% of the Righteous Gentiles recognized for their rescue of Jews are Poles, the highest percentage of all national groups who assisted Jews. ( 28 min)
