A Day in the Warsaw Ghetto: A Birthday Trip In Hell.

In 1941 a Wehrmacht Sergeant celebrated his 43rd birthday by illegally photographing inside the Warsaw Ghetto. The photographs were hidden for over forty years, until he knew he was dying. The filmmaker has done a masterful job in combining the pictures with readings from ghetto diaries, Yiddish songs, and klezmer music. A film by Jack Kuper. 30 min.
