Three Minutes in Poland: Discovering a Lost World in a 1938 Family Film

Talk and film screening with Author Glenn Kurtz.


Glenn Kurtz, the author of Three Minutes in Poland: Discovering a Lost World in a 1938 Family Film, will be coming to The Wiener Library discuss his book, forthcoming from Farrar, Straus & Giroux in November 2014. This special talk will include a screening of the family film footage that inspired the book.

The book concerns a 16mm, colour family film shot by the author's grandfather in 1938 in the small Polish town of Nasielsk. Of the town's three thousand Jews, fewer than one hundred survived the Holocaust. In the course of researching the book, the author met a man who appeared in the film as a 13 year old boy. This man became the book's 'Rosetta stone', in the words of the author, allowing a process by which the history of this lost world began to emerge.
