Poland - the Country and the People

Film | Accession Number: 2003.214 | RG Number: RG-60.3999 | Film ID: 3004

VS, scene opens with a poster hanging on the outside wall of a new brick schoolhouse announcing the rededication of the school building. The sign is written in Polish. A celebration of the new building-the sign talks about the school going from an old thatched-roof hut to a new brick building-according to the sign this celebration is taking place in August 1937. Several shots of the children in the school yard playing happily, then a group of young children being lead by a very somber looking nun in single file to the school house. There is a very abrupt cut at the end of this scene.

**From Julien Bryan's film "Poland the Country and the People" released in 1948, shot 1936-1937.**
