Before World War II, Poland was the largest and most important center of
Jewish creativity, scholarship, and culture in the world. Jews had lived in
Poland since the twelfth century, and in 1939, Poland's 3.5 million Jews
comprised about one-tenth of the population.
Image Before My Eyes depicts the full spectrum of Jewish life in Poland-
from remote villages and small towns to major cities, >from the traditionallypious to the ardently secular. It shows the great range of Jewish involvement in
political and cultural movements such as bundism, Zionism, and anarchism,
and in the creation and sustenance of educational and social institutions.
Through interviews, photographs, and rare and remarkable film footage, the film
pieces together a warm and evocative portrait of Jewish life in Poland between
the wars. 90 mins.
