This rare film document captures the spirit of Jewish life in pre-World War II Vilna. Lively narration and music accompany film sequences of people engaged in the rituals and realities of daily existence at work, at play, in the synagogue, and in school. Vilna’s famous landmarks—the Strashun Library, Shnipeshiker Cemetery and the YIVO Institute—are among the film’s highlights.
