Praise for House of the World
This film shows how the Judaic
injunction to remember the past and care for the graves of one's
ancestors remains an imperative even today . . . a spellbinding story."
- library Journal
"Using stylized archival
footage, sparing interviews, and a smooth montage this elegy for Polish
Jews encourages viewers to "inhabit" the stories eloquently told here.
Highly recommended" - Booklist.
We are haunted by what we see
and don't see, and reminded that soon all remnants of Jewish life in
Poland will vanish completely. . . a very powerful film . . . providing
essential focus to the value of Memory. House of the World can be used
effectively in college level college level classes about the Holocaust,
Jewish Studies, and Psychology. . . It is highly recommended" - MC
