Song of the Lodz Ghetto DVD
Song of the Lodz Ghetto, the new feature-length documentary by David Kaufman, is a comprehensive and moving account of the history of Poland’s “first and last” Jewish ghetto, established by the Nazis during the Second World War in Lodz, Poland’s leading industrial centre. It was the first closed ghetto established in 1940 and the last to be liquidated in August, 1944. The film has a particular focus on music in the Ghetto and is built around a selection of ghetto songs performed by the renowned Jewish music group, Brave Old World. The film is also the first documentary to feature extensive interviews with survivors of the Lodz Ghetto, all of whom are in their late 70s or 80s today.
