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.
