A stunning commemoration of Jews in Poland between the two World Wars, Image Before My Eyes pays homage to the dynamic and vibrant society of 3.5 million people that was destroyed during the Holocaust.

Unearthing the stories of Jewish villagers, scholars, socialists, Zionists, and artists who built a thriving culture during a 900-year history, this triumphant film draws on the artifacts of vanished world - photographs, home movies, songs, and evocative interviews - to recreate Jewish Poland. Tracing the contours of Jewish Diaspora, Image Before My Eyes visits people as varied as a woman who can still sing the Hebrew prayers and Yiddish songs she heard as a young girl, the brother of a young woman who left her Orthodox home to join the theater, and a man who participated in the homegrown Kibbutzim that prepared Zionist youth for life in Palestine.

From the bucolic, traditional shtetls of the countryside to the lively cultural diversity of the cities, award-winning director Josh Waletzky (Partisans of Vilna) masterfully memorializes a proud culture that still inspires hope and reverence.
