Special Screening from the Maine Jewish Film Festival

After Srulik Fridman, age eight, is smuggled from the Warsaw ghetto, his father sends him off alone and tells him to never forget his Jewish faith. Srulik enjoys life in the woods, eluding SS patrols, and eating stolen chickens with a band of Jewish orphans until winter drives him to a farmhouse. Magda, wife and mother of partisans, must send him away, but first schools him in a new identity: Jurek, Christian war orphan. As Jurek he embarks on a solitary journey, seeking work in exchange for food and shelter, unsure if strangers will protect or betray him. Through experiences both joyful and harrowing, with courage, intelligence, determination, and luck, he outlives the war. Based on a Uri Orlev novel, in turn based on a survivor’s true story.
