Mir Kumen On (Children Must Laugh)

This Polish-made, Yiddish-language documentary is bound to provoke complicated feelings in the modern viewer. Set in a socialist, Jewish-run sanatorium for poor children suffering from tuberculosis, it reveals a world that was utterly destroyed in the Holocaust just a few years later—and a future that could have been had not genocide wiped out Poland's Jewish communities.
