Luboml: My Heart Remembers
In 1940 the Jewish shtetl of Luboml in Poland was a vibrant town where religious tradition and community life coexisted. It was an important regional market town, complete with a theatre, a cinema, electric lights, sports teams, and numerous trades and businesses, factories and work-shops, as shown in the film through archival photos and footage. Nazi genocidal actions in Poland in 1941-42 destroyed the Jewish community in Luboml, including the execution of nearly all of its Jewish citizens, as recounted through Holocaust survivors and other former residents of Luboml. An emotionally moving documentary in remembrance of the beauty and vitality of life in a small town in Poland before the Nazis’ genocidal murder of its Jewish citizens. DVD only. Color and B/W. 57 minutes
