Abstract:

Depicts the ghetto's Nazi-appointed Jewish leader, Mordecai Ḥayim Rumkowski. Utilizes historical film footage and still photographs, some contemporary footage, and narration from historical diaries and monographs. Much of the historical material was made at great risk and left deliberately by the doomed community members.
