"The Heavens Will Open for You" - The Story of Malka Rosenthal

This film chronicles the Jewish community in Stanislawow, Eastern Galicia, through the story of Malka Rosenthal. Malka was born in Stanislawow in 1934, the eldest daughter of a wealthy, intellectual family. Over the course of the German occupation, she lost her mother and younger brother. Her father joined the partisans, and Malka was handed over to a Polish family. For one and a half years, she was kept hidden in a barrel underground. After liberation, she was one of the survivors aboard the illegal immigrant ship Exodus, and eventually arrived in Israel in 1948. Malka rebuilt her life through her work and education, and by starting a new family. Her touching life story has been published and translated to many languages, portrayed on stage and in childrens books.

With the generous support of the Adelson Family Foundation.
Israel 2009, 54 minutes, DVD (unrestricted region)
