The discovery of a three minute home movie from 1938 Poland propels a writer’s search for the family of the filmmaker and the discovery of a lost world. Kurtz embarked on a four-year journey to identify the people in the film and recapture life in the predominantly Jewish town before the Holocaust. His book, Three Minutes in Poland: Discovering a Lost World in a 1938 Family Film was cited as a “Best Book of 2014” by The New Yorker, NPR, and the Boston Globe.
Joining Kurtz will be Leora Tec, director of Bridge to Poland, and organization she founded to share the memorialization of Jewish life being carried out by non-Jewish Poles.
