Abstract:

Szmul Arthur Zygielbojm was a brilliant Polish Jew, an important member of Warsaw's Jewish Bund in the years leading up to the Nazi occupation. In 1942 he was smuggled to Belgium, New York and London as the Jewish representative of the Polish Government-in-exile. His mission was to inform those governments of the Nazi horrors in Poland. His extensive efforts to influence high ranking members of each government were futile. Frustrated, he considered his efforts a failure. On May 12, 1943, one day after the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising ended, Zygielbojm committed suicide, to shock the world out of its indifference. This tragic story is related by Zygielbojm's brother Reuven, who travels to today's Warsaw and London exploring the facts of Zygielbojm's life and the significance of his death. Among those interviewed are Jan Karski, the famous "Messenger from Poland" and Marek Edelman, the doctor who organized the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. "The production uses stills, archival footage, as well as contemporary video to present the story. All are of very good to excellent quality." MC Journal; The Journal of Academic Media Librarianship.
