Storyline

Nina's Journey is a feature film, but with an authentic narrator. We follow Nina and her family during six dramatic years, half of them spent in the Warsaw ghetto. The film tells the story of a young girl coming of age under extreme circumstances: Nina falls in love, goes to parties, and graduates high school - all in the Warsaw ghetto. One could say that, in these horrid times, she is almost living the life of a normal teenager. If it wasn't for the fact that all those around her are vanishing, one by one. Nina's Journey is shot in Warsaw, with Polish actors. But it is narrated by the elderly Nina Einhorn herself. Written by Lena Einhorn

A great true story of a Jewish Polish girl during WW2
8 October 2006 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The film title means "Ninas Journey" and tells the story of Ninas life from 1937 an onward. From the start of the film, you are caught by the story told partly in dramatized form played by excellent polish actors, partly with Nina telling her story in person, interviewed by her daughter Lena Einhorn, the films creator. The story is told calmly, but precisely because of that, so much more engaging, as Ninas experiences unfold before our eyes. Her close-knit large extended family, and her immediate family consisting of the formidable Russian-born mother, the more quiet father, her beloved brother Rudek and the young Nina. How many will perish through the following horrors of the war? The part of the story of life in the Warsaw Jewish ghetto especially really gets to you. It's a wonderful film that I'd recommend to anyone.
