ECHOS THAT REMAIN
A poignant, nostalgic study of the Jewish shtetl life before the Holocaust.
Combines hundreds of rare archival photos and previously unseen film footage
with live action sequences shot on location at the sites of former Jewish
communities in Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland and Romania. Dramatizes the folk
stories, parables and anecdotes, and brings tears and laughter to the viewer.
Covers the traditions: Bar Mitzvahs, weddings, etc., and the poverty and
hardships and pogroms, the humor, laughter, and traditional family life that
prevailed in the shtetl in the "Jewish Old World".
