Der letzte Jude von Drohobytsch
The last Jew from Drohobych
The film is about Alfred Schreyer, the only surviving pre-WWII Jewish resident in this Western Ukraine town. During the Nazi occupation he survived forced labor and concentration camps. After the war Schreyer became a singer and violinist in a local Cinema Lobby Orchestra, which was ? until 1963 ? a truly unique Soviet tradition in cinema culture. Today, Alfred Schreyer is living history: his life story chronicles a century in Drohobych caught between tragedy and resilience.
