A deeply moving short documentary about the desperate acts of condemned parents to save their children. Łapy was one of several stations in occupied Poland on the way to the Nazi death camp of Treblinka. Trains transporting Jews would slow down there and sometimes briefly stop while the tracks were being adjusted. Some parents managed to save small children by throwing them off the train; the last eyewitnesses to this story remember these times. Co-director Slawomir Grunberg's film The Peretzniks was presented in the 2010 NYJFF.

Followed by The Art of Spiegelman.

Co-director Slawomir Grunberg in person!
