Karski i władcy ludzkości

“Karski i władcy ludzkości" w reżyserii Sławomira Grünberga to film, który łączy animację i dokument. Możecie go w całości obejrzeć na VOD i Netflixie. Polecamy szczególnie dzisiaj, w 107. rocznice urodzin Jana Karskiego.
Jan Karski, pseudonim „Witold” ujawnił przed państwami zachodniej koalicji okrucieństwa i masowe zbrodnie, jakich hitlerowcy dopuszczali się na terenie Polski. Był emisariuszem Polskiego Państwa Podziemnego potajemnie wysłanym do warszawskiego getta z misją rozpoznania sytuacji Żydów w przededniu „ostatecznego rozwiązania”. Jego celem było przekazanie światu wstrząsających informacji o tragedii narodu żydowskiego.

Film o słynnym polskim emisariuszu Janie Karskim, autorstwa Sławomira Grünberga, zdobywcy prestiżowej nagrody Emmy, reżysera i autora zdjęć do filmów dokumentalnych nominowanych do Oscara i Emmy.

"Filmmaker Slawomir Grünberg has made an amazing, powerful, and poignant documentary"

The Holocaust and World War II had a massively tragic impact on the Jewish people in Europe.

Review: The documentary 'Still Life in Lodz' reveals the power of mementos and memories

Fantastic review of “Still Life in Lodz” by The Los Angeles Times 😊 "Moving and evocative... It's a remarkable story. STILL LIFE IN LODZ reveals the power of mementos and memories" Gary Goldstein, LATimes. My congratulations to Barbara Grünberg who debuted as a Producer at this movie!
“If a picture is worth a thousand words, it’s also worth a documentary inspired by one. That would be director Slawomir Grünberg’s moving and evocative “Still Life in Lodz,” which centers around a painting that hung in the same tenement apartment in Lodz, Poland, for 75 years. ...
Grünberg effectively incorporates archival photos and footage, drawings, and lyrical, illustrative bits of animation into this brief but rich documentary, which ends on a lovely note that brings Elbaum’s journey full circle.”

In the documentary 'Still Life in Lodz," a woman visits the apartment in Poland where she spent her first 19 years and tracks down the painting that hung there for decades.

The film tells the story of Jan Karski, the Polish underground courier who traveled across occupied Europe to inform the Allied powers of N**i crimes against the Jews of Europe in an effort to prevent the Holocaust. Karski carried his dreadful eye-witness report to Britain and the United States, hoping that it would shake the conscience of the powerful leaders or – as he would call them - the Lords of Humanity.

We invite you to watch "The Good Change" (Dobra zmiana) directed by Konrad Szołajski.
Poland is again on headlines of all international newspapers and television news reports because of the huge antigovernment demonstrations. Today’s CNN World says: “Demonstrations of this scale were last seen in the Solidarity movement of the 1980s in Poland which led to the collapse of the government.”

https://www.amazon.com/gp/video/detail/B08LQN4M9F/ref=share_ios_movie

This is a unique documentary analysis of the conflict which is tearing Poland apart and is an early glimpse of the populist movement spreading throughout the Western world.

Karski & The Lords of Humanity
Karski & The Lords of Humanity is a feature-length partially animated documentary project. The film tells the story of a member of the Polish underground who acted as a courier during World War II and whose most prominent mission was to inform the Allied powers of N**i crimes against the Jews of Europe in an effort to prevent the Holocaust. Jan Karski infiltrated the Warsaw Ghetto and a Transit Camp and carried his dreadful eye-witness report of the atrocities to Britain and the United States, hoping that it would shake the conscience of the powerful leaders or – as Karski would call them - the Lords of Humanity.

Don’t Cry When I’m Gone
The film’s title Don’t Cry When I’m Gone comes from the popular song, performed by the Italian singer Marino Marini who visited Poland in the 60s. The lyrics were written by Wanda Sieradzka, the author of many Polish pop hits. This film is about her – a woman who survived the historical turmoil, Warsaw Ghetto and miraculously avoided annihilation by the N**is to build a great artistic career in a postwar Poland. The story of Wanda’s extraordinary life is being told by her friends and her only son, who got back home after years of living abroad to look for the traces of his mother’s past.

Shimon's Returns
This film shot in Poland, Ukraine and Israel tells a story of survival of a single Jewish family in Brzezany, Ukraine. By memories and historical accounts we can observe how in this small town where Jews, Ukrainians and Poles lived relatively peaceful together throughout centuries, the relationships among the town’s three ethnic groups have rapidly changed. The protagonist of our film and his close family were saved by a Ukrainian family from a village near Brzezany. As a result two Ukrainian women received titles of Righteous Gentiles. The film will employ also archival footage from the 1947 Yiddish film “Undzere Kinder”, where Shimon had a role as a child actor.

Saved by Deportation
Saved By Deportation is the first feature length documentary film to tell the dramatic story of Polish Jews who escaped the Holocaust through their deportation to the Soviet Union. The film recounts the 1940 deportations of Polish Jews from Soviet-occupied eastern Poland to Gulag labor settlements in the Arctic north; life in Soviet Central Asia after release from the Gulag; and the deportees' experiences upon returning to Poland at the end of World War II and confronting the aftermath of the Holocaust.

The Legacy of Jedwabne
In the small town Jedwabne in northeast Poland, Jews lived side by side with local Poles for over two centuries, but on July 10, 1941, almost the entire Jewish population of the town was murdered – not by the N**is, but at the hands of their Christian neighbors. This thought-provoking film hopes to increase tolerance and understanding, thereby forging new alliances between Jews and non-Jews.

In the Name of Their Mothers: The Story of Irena Sendler
Through the memories of Irena Sendler, 'In the Name of Their Mothers' tells the unknown story of a secret network of Poles who fought to aid the Jews during World War II. Sendler, a Polish Catholic social worker, led an underground operation to rescue 2,500 Jewish children out of the Warsaw Ghetto. The film recounts her youth as a Polish socialist, wartime conspiracy work, Gestapo arrest and imprisonment, and her ongoing efforts to heal the childhood wounds of war. www.irenasendler.info

The Peretzniks
The film tells the story of a Jewish school in Lodz, Poland. The school was shut down following the Communist anti-Semitic campaign, which took place in Poland in 1968. As a result of this, the Peretz School graduates are dispersed today between the US, Israel, Sweden, Poland, and other countries. The bittersweet memories of their youth in post-war Poland are what bind the Peretzniks together till this day. The Peretzniks' is the first documentary, which addresses the complexities of Jewish existence in post-war Poland under the Communist regime.

Castaways
The small town of Lapy was one of several train stations on the way to Treblinka. Cattle trains with transports of Jews would slow down in Lapy or even stop for a few minutes while the tracks were being adjusted. This is how the idea of trying to save small children by throwing them off the train was born. More than a dozen Jewish children are reported to have been cast from the trains in attempts to save them from death in the gas chambers of Treblinka. The last eyewitnesses to this story live in Lapy to this day and they remember the horrific times.
www.logtv.com/films/castaways

Paint What You Rememeber
Mayer was born in 1916 in a small shtetl: Opatow. He completed seven grades of Polish school and immigrated to Canada at age 17. After he retired over 20 years ago, his daughter Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett, began urging him to tell and paint whatever he could remember of his childhood.
