Long is the road National Center for Jewish Film ; script, Karl-Georg Külb, Israel Becker ; produced by Abraham Weinstein ; directed by Herbert B. Fredersdorf, Marek Goldstein


A forgotten classic and a film of passionate restraint, made by and about Jewish Displaced Persons. Produced in the American zone of occupied Germany in the aftermath of World War II, this first feature film to represent the Holocaust from a Jewish point of view has the power of a collective self-portrait. The young hero is deported in the liquidation of the Warsaw Ghetto, jumps an Auschwitz-bound transport to take his chances in the countryside, and ultimately survives the war with a band of Jewish partisans to search for his family in the ruins of liberated Poland.
