This way!

Follow me, please.

Truly a dead city,

this is one of Europe's

largest Jewish cemeteries.

Before World War Two,

the Jewish community in Poland

numbered some 3.5 million.

Many were politicians,

economists, artists, scientists,

writers, historians, philanthropists...


Morning, Mrs. Goldstein!

Come on in! It's cold out.

- Sleep well?

- Yes! And you?

Who has the camera?

Milo! You weren't at breakfast.

What were you up to?

Morning, Rivka.

Sleep well?

No? Why not?

- I couldn't sleep.

- You'll soon feel better.

- Mind if I sit there?

- Not at all.

I need some peace.

Yesterday, the couple in front of me

kvetched all day long!

Sleep well?

I had heartburn all night.

You don't say.

You asked me.

Welcome aboard, everyone.

You didn't shave?

Again, please excuse my bad French.

We'll be driving west

through Warsaw,

and onward to Katowice.

It's under 5 hours'drive. Thank you.

This tunnel under the Vistula comes out

in the Prague quarter.

Above us

On your left,

the Palace of Art and Science,

built on Stalin's orders.

The roof garden on the 30th floor

Sorry, am I blocking

- May I?

- Sure.

This is Jean Paul II Avenue

with its mix of postwar

and modern architecture.

The ghetto, now gone,

ran east from here

to Bonifraterska Street,

where a wall cut it off

from the rest of the city.

The monument on your left


who held off the German army

for 3 weeks in the spring of '43.

The inhabitants,

some 450,000, were deported

and exterminated at Treblinka.

You've been before?

No, never.

I pictured it differently.

Everything okay?

Mr. Zalcberg?

I'll be watching you today.

Look out!

Weren't you bothered? Out alone?

You saw that taxi driver

hanging around us?

You especially, Mrs. Zalcberg.

Didn't you see him?

Like I said,

keep your purse under your arm!

Especially abroad!

It's not our bags they're after.

You have a short memory!

Be quiet already!

What a nerve!

I'm not here to see Poles.

What Poles?

I don't see any.

It was a group decision, like always.

Next time, hitchhike to Auschwitz!


I came on my own.

My wife and sons were against it.

They said it would be too hard

but I think they just don't care.

But their grandparents

died there, right?

This is my oldest, with his kids.

He's a professor. Stomatology.

Did you lose family

in the camps?

My parents and sister were deported.

- This is your first trip?

- Yes.

My granddaughter and her mother.

Cute, isn't she?

Look at those horrible buildings!

They killed all their Jews.

Massacred them.

You don't give a damn.

Not one Jew left.

- Living like rats.

- Dad!

Skip it. No Pole ever hurt me.

See what nice houses they have?

Had a quarrel with your wife?

I forgot her in the cemetery yesterday.

Okay, so?

How long do I have

to be punished?

Mr. Adler,

I had the same trouble with my wife.

That boy's her spitting image.

Try talking to him!

Like mother, like son.

We're slowing down.

Seem to be stopping.

What's the time?

Ladies and gentlemen,

a small technical problem.

We're making a short stop.

Don't worry,

the driver will fix it.

Looks like the radiator.

Where are we?

I've no idea.

I thought I heard a tire burst.

- Maybe it's the lunch stop.

- Already?

It's an air hose.

- What's up?

- One moment...

Has he never seen smoke?


Quiet, please. Calm down.

Mr Buhl, our driver,

tells me we've broken down.

Keep calm.

He's going to call a repairman.

We're not far

Doctor! Doctor!

Sit down!

Let the doctor through.

She's coming round.

She's done this before.
