A film by the Kolbuszower relief association in conjunction with the Koboszower young men’s benevolent society, depicting life in the year 1929 in four cities in Poland: Kolbuszowa, Ranizow, Sokolow, and Rzeszo. The film, made by Pesach Zuckerman, was likely intended to create a memory of Polish cities for Jews who emigrated from them to the United States, as well as to raise donations for these Polish communities. The film portrays the daily life in these cities between the wars, showing the functioning of the market, synagogues and Cheder children, the gymnasium, the cemetery, and the Jews of these towns immersed in their surroundings – trading, laughing, listening to an orchestra playing, learning, and praying.
It is a film that presents the lives of Jews in Poland as vibrant, connected to their surroundings and neighbors, and filled with joy.
