Stunning Historical Document
11 April 2007 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This is a stunning two-reel short appealing for financial support from Americans to assist in the feeding and resettlement in Palestine of 1.5 million European Jews who in 1946 were "incredibly, alive." Orson Welles' magnificent narration stirs one's soul. The juxtaposition of montages of displacement in Europe and peaceful, progressive construction projects in Palestine adds to the emotion underlying this film. Its intent is to encourage monetary sacrifice among supporters of the Jewish survivors. Its importance today is as illustrative documentation of early postwar efforts that would culminate two years later in the creation of the Jewish nation state, Israel.
