The story of Jewish life in Eastern Europe brought to life by some of the last remaining eyewitnesses. Accompanied by archival films, vintage photographs and traditional cantorial music, the film takes a realistic and enlightening look at this unique and all but vanished way of life. Rural communities often had no running water or electricity. Anti-Semitism was a part of daily life. Crowded conditions and poverty seemed to prevail but through the eyes of the individuals interviewed, Jewish communities were close-knit and often joyous places to live.
