A Different World - The Story of Poland's Jews

Wednesday, 24 March 2021  |  Admin

A Different World  offers a nuanced and subtle look into interwar Poland and the relationship between Jews and Poles... I know of no other film that is as balanced, as comprehensive, as moving and as poignant. It is morally compelling that it be brought forth to 21st century audiences”.  Michael Berenbaum, Professor of Jewish Studies at the American Jewish University, author of The World Must Know.

“Raye Farr's fine documentary A Different World, paints the prewar scene vividly, using eyewitness interviews and authentic film; the images of Jewish life and presence are clear and memorable... Anyone seriously interested in the history of our times will want to see A Different World.” Sir Jeremy Isaacs, excecutive producer, The World at War.

Messenger from Poland  “Jan Karski witnessed the Holocaust first hand. He sought to alert the West to the slaughter while it was happening and while they could make a difference.

Messenger from Poland tells his story in his own world; his words are urgent testimony, urgent still after the passage of 70 years. See this film and be prepared to be haunted and transformed, to ask 'what if' and to wonder why not'?

It makes one proud to be human and yet so very deeply ashamed.” Michael Berenbaum

A Different World is now available on DVD.
