This inspiring film shows how a decimated, wooden Polish synagogue is brought back to life and given a permanent home in the new POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw. Before their destruction by the Nazis, over 200 wooden synagogues existed in Poland, including the synagogue of Gwozdziec. Over a period of three summers, Boston-based professors Rick and Laura Brown lead a team of students, artisans and builders to reconstruct the Gwozdziec synagogue’s complex roof.
Immediately after the film join us next door at Heights Arts for a film schmooze with Rick & Laura Brown. Light refreshments will be served.
