This 1948, semi-documentary film features the comedy duo Szymon Dzigan and Israel Shumacher as two Jewish men who return to Lodz after the war and perform Yiddish vaudeville for orphans. Moved by the children’s stories, the comedians decide to visit the orphanage where they are essentially playing themselves, as are the children. Like so many, they were coming to grips with what happened in the Holocaust.
This was the last Yiddish language film ever to be made in Poland.
