Director: Andrzej Krakowski

In 1968 Poland expelled the last remaining Jews from what once was the largest Jewish community in the world, effectively ending an over one thousand-year history. Interspersing archival footage from 1968 with letters from the period and personal interviews, the film reveals many painful stories, including that of the director's father.

Discussant: Antony Polonsky, Brandeis University
