Synopsis

It is in Warsaw that the celebrated French conductor Marc Minkowski uncovers the fascinating past of his Jewish paternal ancestors, fervent Polish patriots, who belonged to the elite of their country prior to the Second World War. Yet today there remains little of their previous splendor.
This documentary film accompanied by the famous symphonic orchestra "Sinfonia Varsovia", under the direction of Minkowski himself, takes an unprecedented look into the turbulent fate of Jewish families in Central Europe.
