Undying Love: True Stories of Courage and Faith

Many true stories of the Founding Members of the Lodzer Synagogue. David and Jenny Rybowski will be there to speak and answer questions.

One does not usually associate the word “love” with the Holocaust, yet this tender documentary relates how love did surface, against all odds, in the Displaced Persons (DP) camps after World War II.

The movie “Undying Love”, tells the poignant and often-miraculous true-life love stories of ordinary people who survived the unimaginable horrors of the Holocaust and continued with dignity and undaunted hopes for a promising future. Many of the stories

The film is a testament to the Survivors’ collective optimism and desire for a normal life. In their teens and twenties, many were the sole survivors of their family and with the trauma of imprisonment behind them, they felt a great need to form new attachments. These tales of blossoming love in such difficult circumstances is artfully recreated on film by Helene Klodawsky, the noted documentarian whose own parents are part of the story.

Couples tell of chance meetings or of re-found childhood sweethearts. Now they recount their love stories with spirit, insight and passion. This film artfully touches on many powerful realities but transcends the darkness to become a source of profound inspiration.

Nominated for an Oscar in 2003 and Winner of Four (4) International film awards.
