A screening of the film “To be a Jew in Poland”

“To be a Jew in Poland” is an interesting documentary – an interview with Marian Marzyński, who created the first Polish TV “show” – “Tournament of Towns” broadcast in the 1960s. During World War II, Marian Marzyński as a Pole of Jewish origin came to the Warsaw ghetto, from which he was transported to the Aryan side and rescued by people of good will. In 1969 he was forced to leave Poland because of the Polish anti-Semitic campaign. He settled in the USA, where he also worked for television doing documentaries (some moving fragments of which present his testimonies) and winning, among others, two Emmy Awards. The film is a personal and informative lesson about the war and post-war Poland and inspires audiences to watch other films by Marzyński, who returned to Poland several times in an attempt to deal with the past.

After the presentation there was a meeting with the main character of the film Marian Marzyński and director Jack Pałasiński. The meeting lwas chaired by Jarosław Skulski.
