The documentary film Luboml - My Heart Remembers on VHS tape


About the film My Heart Remembers

This historical video uses rare film footage, an extensive collection of archival photos from the Luboml exhibition project and interviews with former residents to re-create the fabric of daily life in the predominately Jewish market town, or shtetl, of Luboml in prewar Poland.

The video reveals a vibrant town where religious tradition and community life coexisted. No quaint rural village, Luboml was an important regional market town, complete with a theater, a cinema, electric lights, sports teams, and numerous trades and businesses, factories and workshops.

Nazi genocidal actions in Poland in 1941-42 destroyed the Jewish community in Luboml, including the execution of nearly all its Jewish citizens, as recounted through moving interviews with Holocaust survivors and other former residents of Luboml.
