Film screening of 'A Different World: Poland's Jews 1919-1943'

'A Different World' concentrates on the vibrant lives of Polish Jews before their arrival at the Third Reich's killing centres.


There are many films about the Holocaust. Raye Farr's film A Different World is exceptional in that it concentrates on the vibrant lives of Polish Jews before their arrival at the Third Reich's killing centres.

First broadcast in 1987 as part of the documentary series The Struggles for Poland, the film has been unavailable for two decades. Now, in time to mark the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, the film has been restored and released as a DVD for home and educational use. The screening at the Wiener Library on May 16 takes place seventy years to the day after General Jűrgen Stroop celebrated his victory over the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising by ordering the destruction by fire of Warsaw's Great Synagogue. In A Different World, it is the presence of Poland's Jews and their testimony that have the final word.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with Emmy award-winning producer Martin Smith and the renowned writer and journalist Neal Ascherson.
