This film is produced by the Simon Wiesenthal Center's 'Moriah Films', a two-time Academy Award winner for Best Documentary Feature, Genocide (1981) and The Long Way Home (1997). 'Echoes That Remain' is a poignant study of Jewish shtetl life before the Holocaust. It combines hundreds of rare archival photos and previously unseen film footage, with live action sequences shot on location at the sites of former Jewish communities in Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland and Romania. The film's production team spent over a year of research in archives around the world collecting film footage and photographs to help dramatize the folk stories, parables and anecdotes. It is a film that will bring tears and laughter to both the young and old.
