JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: An amazing website! Steven Spielberg! -- particularly interesting to Lithuania researchers #general

There is an amazing home video of Lithuania t theis
website that is about ten minutes long. I was
wondering if anyone who is familiar with Lithuania can
identify the small shetyls in the beginning of the
film. I sent an email to the archives and they said
that the towns had not been identified in the film.
It looks like it could be Telz (based upon pictures I
have seen of Telz) but who knows.

In one of the scenes, there is a quick flash on what
appears to be either a yeshiva or a shul and you can
see the writing at the top (that presumably would
identify the building) but it is literally two seconds
long and when I tried to freeze that frame, I could
not get a good look at the writing.
