We are Jews from Wroclaw

Documentary produced by Karin Kaper and Dirk Szuszies

In the film “We are Jews from Wroclaw”, 14 eyewitnesses recount and recall their lives in Wroclaw. They describe their fates of flight and exile, the loss of their homes as well as their new beginnings in countries such as the United States, Israel, England, France and even Germany. The current situation of the Jewish community in Wroclaw is also reflected in the film.
