FEATURED IN

How the discovery of a 1941 amateur 8mm camera roll unearthed the history of Warsaw’s ghetto

Bednarski’s film succeeds in being a key contribution to a much larger conversation not only about the Holocaust, but about our relationship to history and the sites of remembrance we inhabit.
