Yiddish World Remembered, A

A Yiddish World Remembered looks back at the all but vanished Jewish way of life that existed in Eastern Europe before War World II. Through never before seen archival films, vintage photographs, traditional cantorial and Klezmer music, and personal recollections, once vibrant cities and small towns (shtetls) come alive again. The few remaining eyewitnesses share their compelling stories about life in the poor but close knit communities where rabbis settles disputes, yentas gossiped, boys dedicated themselves to learning, and humor pervaded every aspect of life.

The Film explores everything from the fascinating language of Yiddish, the style of dress, and the traditional foods to the vibrant cultural, religious and political life that in Poland alone could support 24 Yiddish language dailies.
