"My Lodz No Longer Exists" - The story of Yosef Neuhaus
This film chronicles the Jewish community in Lodz, Poland, through the story of Yosef Neuhaus. Yosef was born in Lodz in 1924, to Tova and Zvi Hirsch. In May 1940, he was forced to enter the Lodz ghetto along with his parents and younger sister Sofia, where they lived for four years until their deportation to Auschwitz-Birkenau. All of Yosefs family members were murdered in the camp. Yosef survived and was imprisoned in several other camps. In 1946 he immigrated to pre-state Israel, fought in Israels wars including the War of Independence and started a new family. This touching film documents the major turning points in Yosefs story, his persistence in choosing life, and his contributions to the State of Israel.

With the generous support of the Adelson Family Foundation.
Israel 2009, 41 minutes, DVD (unrestricted region)
