Ruth (1984), Film from the Artur Brauner Collection

A Film from the Artur Brauner Collection at Our Library

Ruth is 13 years old when the Germans invade Poland in 1939. The persecution of Jews follows immediately, but Ruth manages to escape. Left completely to her own devices, she goes first to her aunt at the Warsaw Ghetto, flees again, finds help, and experiences betrayal. Deadly peril and hunger are her constant companions.
