Widely praised as the most authentic film ever made about Jewish life within the Holocaust, this classic documentary uses the secret diaries of a single community to reveal the heroic struggle of 250,000 people trapped in the longest surviving Jewish community in Nazi Europe. Winner of the International Film Critics Award and short-listed for the Academy Award Best Documentary Oscar, the film brings us the words and faces of besieged families who love life but can only pray for a miracle to save them. Critics have marveled at how Lodz Ghetto loses the distance between viewers and victims, presenting with agonizing suspense a microcosm of the history of the Holocaust. A true drama told with intimacy and passion, Lodz Ghetto is a film about the human spirit, yearning to live, love and be free.
