Summary
This film focuses on a group from a Jewish congregation in New Jersey who journey to eastern Europe in search of their Jewish past. No one expected a light-hearted vacation, but each felt it was important to make this connection to their Jewish heritage. Trips such as theirs have become big business in Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Poland. Tour guides, travel agents, hotels, souvenir vendors and the like are profiting from the interest in the Holocaust. Even "Schindler's List tours" are proliferating. Yet despite such commercialism, this pilgrimage was deeply meaningful for the group we follow. As they visit the Old Jewish Cemetery, the ghetto of Terezin, the Tahani Synagogue in Budapest, and the extermination camps of Auschwitz and Birkenau - the impact is more searing than they anticipated. Many come away with a deeper commitment to the state of Israel and to their own identity as Jews
