A Holocaust Survivor Returns to Poland

After centuries of often violent anti-Semitism–since long before, during and after World War II–the government of Poland recently opened a new museum honoring the role of Jews in Polish history. That occasion prompted Dasha Rittenberg of New York, a Holocaust survivor, to go back to Poland to see if and how much it has changed. Filmmaker Menachem Daum follows Rittenberg’s journey to her grandfather’s grave site, the dedication ceremony for the new museum, and her meeting with a Polish Catholic bishop.
