No. 4 Street of Our Lady


90 minutes

This film tells the story of Francisca Halamajowa, a Polish-Catholic woman who hid 16 of her Jewish neighbors during the Holocaust. It draws on excerpts from a diary kept by one of the survivors, Moshe Maltz, and incorporates testimonies from other Jews saved by Halamajowa, her descendants, and former neighbors as they reconnect on a trip back to Sokal.
