Jewish Life in Cracow from the archives of The National Center for Jewish Film DVD

Sale price$ 29.95


Documentary Film/DVD

Focusing on Cracow’s Jewish quarter, this film intermingles old and new, using music to enhance the images. Streetcars share tree-lined streets with horse-drawn carriages; people conduct business under umbrella-covered markets and arcaded market halls; parks and schoolyards host sports, games and animated discussions. Scenes of the famous Remu Synagogue and the Alte Shul, an orphanage, a hospital, the Jewish Community Council and several schools convey the vitality of this age-old Jewish community.
