storyline

 

The film is kind of an answer for a call made by Marek Edelman, the former commander of the Warsaw Jewish Ghetto Uprising who witnessed the extermination in the Warsaw Ghetto throughout its existence. He published a book based on his own experience 'And there was love in the ghetto...'

Although inhuman conditions, a lot of marvelous things happened in Ghetto. In war times, people became very attached to each other, as the loneliness was hard to bear. People could not live without love and extreme situations made it very clear.

This film is about love which suffused peoples lives, often very short ones.
