Klezmer supergroup Brave Old World's haunting musical program of songs from the Lodz ghetto is the framework on which producer/director David Kaufman has created his definitive new documentary on the Lodz ghetto. It features extensive interviews from the survivors of the Holocaust from Lodz. It focuses on the lives of two historical figures: the beloved and popular street-singer Yankele Herszkowicz, whose remarkable songs lifted the spirits of the Jews of the ghetto when their lives were full of despair and whose own tragic life mirrored the fate of Polish Jewry; and the despotic, Nazi-appointed Jewish leader of the ghetto, Chaim Rumkowski. -- Container.
