Bittere Ernte


ANGRY HARVES Leave the doll. The doll will

stay in the train and go on.

To the concentration camp?

The doll will hold you back.

You need to jump and run away fast.

I know that you can run fast.

But won't it hurt?

It won't hurt.

- Then will we go back to Vienna?

- Yes.

We'll go home. Don't be afraid.

I'm not afraid, Mom.

But she wants to go home, too.

- Now I've got you.

- Leave me alone!

Go now, Rosa.

Lace up your shoes.

Stop them!

I want my doll. Mom, I'm afraid!

You'll jump. It won't hurt at all.

And then we'll go to Vienna.

Pass the knife, fast.

Tunnel! Now, Rosa!


There it is.

Mrs. Kaminska lives here?

Number 16 is there.

My God.

- Follow me.

- Okay.

And bring a basket with you.

But be careful.


Excuse me. Does Mrs. Kaminska live here?

What do you want from her?

My name is Leon Wolny, from Wola.

Mrs. Kaminska was so kind

as to write me a letter.

Come in. I didn't recognize

you at first.

You are...

You're Eugenia, aren't you?

I haven't seen you since your wedding.

Come on, put it here,

and bring the potatoes right away.

My God.

How many years have passed since...

Please, come in. I'll tell my mother.

We live alone here now.

Thank you. Thank you very much.

Would you like some tea?

Don't go to any trouble for me.

What they call tea these days

is dried raspberry leaves.

We haven't drunk real tea for a year.

It's really not necessary.

I remember how you showed me the pony.

On my 10th birthday. The pony Igor.

It was a birthday present from Daddy.

You were so proud of your new livery.

That was my first day

working on the estate.

Your father was a stable boy

at our place, wasn't he?

Head groom.

Oh, yes.

He was an industrious

and hardworking man.

Others always drank away their wages.

He didn't. He saved for his own farm,

and now it's one of the most imposing

estates in our region.

Oh, my God!

How glad I am to see you again.

Do you see, Leon,

what has happened to us?

God has imposed a bitter trial on us.

This is a hard time

of probation for both heart and soul.

My dear, I suppose that I may call you

by your first name, like I used to.

Dear Mrs. Kaminska, for me it is a...

A great honor.

Yes. Sit down, sit down, my dear.

And how is your brother?


Thank you very much. Thank you.

Thank you very much. Thank you.


they transported him

almost two years ago.

First he was in jail in Katowice, then

they perhaps transported him to Berlin,

but I haven't heard from him.

Sometimes I'm afraid

that he's died in a concentration camp.

Nowadays, they'll kill you for nothing.

I took such good care of him.

Looked after him.

I paid $500 in bribes,

but it was no use.

Are you still a bachelor?

Our priest would have liked to marry you

to his sister.

No. No, no, no.

Now is not the right time for that.

I'm waiting until my brother returns,

until the war is over.

Are you crazy? My breakfast! Damn it!

Stop! Come on!

Are you...

Did I... Are you hurt?

Are you alone?

Are you hiding from the Germans?


Don't be afraid. Don't be afraid.

What shall I do with you?



Thank you.

You are at my place.

There's nobody else here.

You have to take these wet clothes off.

Come on.

Did you escape from a transport?

Get changed.

I'll unyoke the horse

and take it into the stable.

These are my brother's clothes.

I'll be back soon.

They set houses on fire

when they find Jews in them, huh?

She has to understand that.

Come here. Yes.

I'm sorry to disturb you.

I brought you some socks.

Take them.

Wait, I'll help you.

You're putting yourself at risk
