Unger Family Collection

Film Collection | Accession Number: 2008.139.1
Collection Summary
Morris Unger, his wife Ethel, and their sons Robert and Sy traveled from New York City to Morris' hometown, the village of Niebylec, Poland (Niblitz or Neblisch in Yiddish), in the summers of 1932 and 1934. Robert (age 15 in 1932) filmed their visit. The purpose was to visit Morris' father, Kalman Unger. There are scenes showing members of the Orthodox community going to synagogue and shots of the well-dressed Americanized Unger family socializing with the poor shtetl Jews.
