After many years,
Lucille Eichengreen, who is a survivor from the Lodz Ghetto, goes there to
visit the same, almost unchanged places, streets and houses. On the walls of
the buildings, she can still find inscriptions full of despair and horror
experienced by the inhabitants of the small Jewish district established by the
Nazis within the town of Lodz at the beginning of WWII. Using modern and old
photos, reports of witnesses and authentic speeches of Chaim Rumkowski, the
last Ghetto’s Judenrat leader, the film presents the trauma of the Jewish
families suddenly brought to the overcrowded Lodz Ghetto from France, Hungary
and Czech Republic, and the mutual relationships between captives. The director
and scriptwriter try to get access into the cruel reality of that time, without
daring to judge it.
