Szmul Artur Zygielbojm was a Polish Jewish socialist politician and member of the Polish Government-in-Exile in London during World War II. A lifelong activist, he is most famous for his final act of protest to the world against the indifference of the Allies to the fate of Europe’s Jews. In this richly multimedia and life-affirming film-and-discussion program, Dr. Jud Newborn interweaves his thrilling discovery of Zygielbojm’s lost artifacts with an elegy to the lost world of the Jewish shtetl.
