Shtetl a film by Jack Kuper ; produced in association with Vision TV ; Kuper Productions Ltd
- Projected medium
- [New York, N.Y.] : Cinema Guild, , c1995
Elderly folk artist Mayer Kirshenblatt recounts the story behind his paintings which evoke his childhood in a Polish shtetl. His words and images recreate the sights, sounds and smells of life, the beliefs and rituals of the small town Jewish communities which once thrived throughout Eastern Europe, but which were obliterated, along with the six million, in World War II. Much has been recorded about how the shtetl Jews perished. This video remembers them for the way they lived.
