Jewish life in Poland | Free Full DW Documentary

published on July 2, 2020

The Jewish service of morning prayer,
Shacharit, in Warsaw’s main synagogue

Led, proudly, by the
Chief Rabbi of Poland

-The fact that there is noise behind me
because the people that had prayed are

now having breakfast together
is a sign that there is Jewish life!

A resurgence of Jewish life in Poland?
For many, a highly unexpected development

This was the country that Nazi Germany
chose as the epicenter of a systematic

genocide in which six million
Jews died across Europe

-We don’t talk a
lot about Auschwitz

-This person has
a gift A great gift

-We desperately
needed a Rabbi

-A Catholic bishop is among the various
public figures attending this interfaith

service in Warsaw The host: Michael
Schudrich, Chief Rabbi of Poland

An interfaith prayer wishing that
anti-Semitism will finally disappear

-Change doesn’t happen overnight It
takes time, but as long as you see you’re

going in the right direction, it gives
you energy and it gives you hope

And it’s that hope that sustains the work
of Michael Schudrich This is his office in

Warsaw’s Nożyk Synagogue — also
a HOME for the American-born rabbi

-You never find what you
want when you need it

The son of a New York rabbi, he
first visited the country in the 1970s — in

search of his roots His grandparents had
left Europe before the Second World War

In Communist-ruled Poland,
Schudrich found a few Jews

struggling to preserve what
was left of their heritage

-The diaries I wrote in 79, my
impressions when I met different

people, I remember one thing: Oh, this
person has the mezuzah on the inside of

the door and not on the outside,
and I thought that someone was being

embarrassed to be Jewish But I
realized later that it was a tremendous

statement of being Jewish because no
one had it on the outside and almost no

one had it on the inside Having to
understand what something meant here

After the collapse of Communism, Schudrich
— now a rabbi himself — relocated to Warsaw

and embarked on a mission: to re-establish
Jewish religious life in Poland

-This is the first time that a Jewish
prayer book was reprinted in Poland after

the fall of Communism This is
the original page, was from 1926

This is probably
from 91, 92

Before that, there were few if any Jewish
religious books here Now, thirty years

on, Warsaw has a flourishing
Jewish school again, with 200 students

This year will see the
first of them graduate

Joanna Niemirska’s children attend
the school Like thousands of other Polish

Jews, it was only after the fall of
Communism that she started to embrace her

Jewish identity thanks
also to the dedication

of Chief Rabbi
Michael Schudrich

The Jewish school has been a
blessing for Joanna Niemierska,

her husband Lukasz
and their three children

-It’s so big luggage of problems of
pastof everything that it’s never neutral

-And the minority here is a
real minority So, it’s real —

sometimes it feels like we’re
all weirdos in our own country

-There’s a growing climate of trust I
think that’s the most important thing

Obviously, there are still many
prejudices and traumas left over from

the Second World War They’ve
been passed down from generation to

generation The war didn’t just destroy
— or at least try to destroy — human

dignity; to a great extent, it also
destroyed the mutual trust between

people — including the trust between
the Jewish and Polish peoples

It’s December and Hanukkah, the Jewish
Festival of Lights, is approaching The

rabbi offers some
guidelines to the teachers

-An important question is whether to
give the children presents at Hanukkah

A few hundred years ago, there was
the so-called “Hanukkah gelt” Children

were given money to buy themselves
something Today, it’s perfectly fine to

give Jewish children a small present
on every Hanukkah evening You don’t

have to, of course It used to be
Hanukkah gelt, or some chocolate We’re

living here under strong Christian cultural
influences The Christmas season is

at a similar time of the year to Hanukkah
So, let’s give the children presents

Schudrich has been working in Poland for
the past thirty years The school is one of

many funded by the American
philanthropist Ronald S Lauder

to promote Jewish
life in eastern Europe

-We needed somebody to go to Poland
I heard about this rabbi named Michael

Schudrich So we brought him over
We saw him, and we said: “This is the right

person” We installed him in a
synagogue — in ’90, ’91 And also was

involved in the beginning, the start
of a school, a kindergarten But what is

interesting is that, the minute he got to
Poland, he became much more involved

with the community, much more
Polish, and he started to learn Polish

-We desperately needed a rabbi — any
rabbi But Michael Schudrich wasn’t just

any rabbi I remember his first trip That
was already Rychwald So it must have

been early nineties He’d just arrived
after flying nonstop from New York or

so He was that tired, but he still had
a session with the teenagers, and they

were pestering him with questions,
and eventually Michael, very tired, said,

“Ok, guys! Tomorrow’s another day
Let’s just sleep over it” And he’s trying

to rise from the armchair he was sitting
in, and the girls just shoved him back

“You don’t understand! We’re the
next generation of Jewish mothers in this

country We need to
know everything now!”

Monika and Stanislaw
Krajewski remained faithful to

their heritage even
during the Communist era

-We had begun before that, you know,
much earlier This is Monika’s book —

the second one, by the way
— of the cemeteries in Poland

The Krajewskis researched this aspect of
Jewish heritage first Some 90 percent of

the Jewish population of Poland
were murdered during the German

occupation Most of those who survived
did so by going underground or pretending

to be Christian — and losing their
Jewish identity These old cemeteries are

a precious reminder of Poland’s extensive
Jewish population before the Holocaust

-It was like an eye-opener — eye opening
to the presence of the Jewish past In

my circle of friends there were many
who had Jewish ancestry, but we didn’t

learn anything Jewish We
didn’t feel Jewish when we were

children because we
were not introduced to it

The Krajewskis have been living their
lives in accordance with Jewish traditions

and scripture for two generations now
Their son, Daniel, was prepared for his

bar mitzvah — the Jewish coming of age
ceremony for boys — by Rabbi Schudrich

The Chief Rabbi is now off
on a trip to southern Poland

He’s constantly on the move And
sometimes that means mobile conferencing

in the car Today, he’s talking to
a Jewish community in Pittsburgh

He’s setting up an exchange program
for young Jews from Poland and the US

-I think our biggest challenge on the
very practical — and it is less, but still

existing on follow-up — is we don’t
necessarily have the professional

staff to follow up
the way we should

With a plethora of projects to watch over,
it often seems like too much for one man

-Who said it was going to be easy? I
can say that the Jewish community of

Poland in the last 30 years has gone
from a stagnating, dying, dysfunctional

Jewish community to a re-emerging
vibrant dysfunctional Jewish community

We’re still dysfunctional, but at least now
we’re alive; we’re vibrant, we’re creating

Today, there are once again Jewish
communities in nearly all of Poland’s

larger towns and cities Optimistic
estimates say the country is now home

to up to 12 practicing Jews This
renaissance has led to a growing demand

for kosher food Today,
Rabbi Schudrich is visiting three

businesses catering to that
demand We’re only welcome to

film in one: the
Pravda vodka distillery

-The production line first — or the office?
-Production!

Jewish dietary laws divide foodstuffs into
kosher and non-kosher The Chief Rabbi

checks production for
compliance Certain additives, such

as pork-based gelatin,
are not permitted

-It happens to be that today they’re
doing a production for Israel ‘Cause it’s

not always the stickers in Hebrew
So you can see: all these stickers

are in Hebrew because
it’s going to Israel

After inspection, the firm is given
an international kosher certificate

Vodka is a popular drink
during the Passover festival

-So, this here, you see, has someone
actually signed in Hebrew by our kosher

supervisor It’s with a lock here and here
and here and here So we know that when

we come back to the Passover production
that it really is from that alcohol

Most of the kosher vodka
is for export, with only

a fraction
staying in Poland

-How important is this market
for you to have a kosher product?

-Passover, you mean? For Passover
products the main market is Israel Also

we produce and sell this product to
United States and to Republic of South

Africa Also some amounts we produce
and sell to Poland And still we are trying

to raise our market for kosher Passover
vodka and also for other kosher products

-So at least a share you are
selling in Poland, which means

there is a market of
Jewish people who

-Very small
-It’s not a big community if you think

about Polish Jewish people But I think
the most of the people who don’t know that

their roots are from the Jewish community
So I think this is still in progress to

have and to get the information
about their roots and their generations

-Very well said

-I’m very happy that I wasn’t the
only Jew who wanted to live as a Jew in

Poland Otherwise it would have
been a little bit lonely But if those Jews

eventually decide — and some do —
that they want to live their Jewish lives

elsewhere, it’s their free choice
We’re not making a religion out of Jews in

Poland It’s not an obligation, but it
certainly is a right, and it gives me also

a private satisfaction We’re hard to
kill, and I would like to keep it that way

-Here’s another kosher certificate I
know the firm is just getting it renewed

-And this is the confirmation for kosher
distillation Excellent Thank you I hope

I haven’t caused you
too many headaches

And the rabbi
leaves with a present

-Very important: It’s
kosher for Passover!

So far, our impressions have
been positive But Jewish-Gentile

encounters don’t
always run this smoothly

Relations with the Polish government
have been strained recently The right-

wing nationalist government introduced
legislation in 2018 that caused deep

offense to Jewish sensibilities It made
it illegal to suggest that the Polish state

or people were in any way complicit in
the Holocaust, perpetrated by the Nazis

-It basically was to defend the good
name of Poland; that Poland shouldn't

be blamed for things that they didn't do
But there was then a great concern: But

there were Poles that did bad things
And how are we going to deal with

that? And more importantly was the
problem that the reaction There

were hurtful statements There were
hurtful statements made by some Poles

There were hurtful statements
made by some Jews

Protests met with a wave of anti-Semitic
rhetoric in the media and on the Internet

-The bill was controversial On the one
hand, Poles feel insulted when the press

in Europe or the international media
refer to the German concentration

camps as Polish death camps It hurts
the Poles You have to understand that

The Polish people themselves
suffered during the Second World War

Six million of them died, almost 25 percent
of the Polish nation This legacy of

the Second World War is embedded
in the consciousness of generations of

Poles — to this day After all they
suffered, they are extremely sensitive to

claims that the Poles were responsible for
the existence of the death camps in Poland

-At the end, it was an unnecessary
problem that has more or less is no

longer People remember it; but
it’s no longer a wound, it’s a scar

When international Jewish organizations
protested, Warsaw held discussions with

the Israeli government, and the
legislation was watered down Rabbi

Schudrich played a mediating
role But he prefers to focus

on the positive
aspects of life in Poland

For instance, that Poland is represented
by people like Dariusz Popiela, a

young kayaker who has competed for the
country at the Olympic games Popiela is

as busy as the Chief Rabbi, but he
still finds time to get involved in the

restoration of Jewish cemeteries — like
the one in Grybów in southern Poland

For years, the cemetery
was completely neglected

-We’re going to try and improve things
here First, I’ll launch an appeal on

Facebook We already have
permission I’ve been busy, and otherwise

I’d have come to get
this fixed up much sooner

Popiela wanted to clear the cemetery
of weeds and restore its former dignity

Several months and a lot of hard
work later, it’s re-opening There’s a new

memorial plaque listing the Jewish
residents of this small village who were

killed by the Nazis For Rabbi
Schudrich, the commitment

of these volunteers is
especially appreciated

-With our presence here we express
our memory The Jewish Book of Life of

the Grybów region was closed after
several centuries in August 1942 On the

20th of August the Nazis
started the Reinhardt-Operation

I would like to ask Chief Rabbi of Poland
Michael Schudrich to say a few words

-On the one hand, my heart is broken
On the other hand, I’m very happy

today It’s broken because the Jewish
people of Grybów were killed simply

because they were Jewish I
would like to thank our mayor for his

words He said that we must oppose
anger; we must oppose hatred when it

is still small, and before it has spread
At the same time, my heart is happy

Who would have thought, when the
war ended seventy-four years ago, that

respect would be shown to the dead
in this Jewish cemetery once again; that

the mass graves would be
marked and remembered?

In 1942 the Nazi regime finalized plans
to exterminate the entire Jewish population

of Europe As in Grybów, German troops
dissolved the ghettos in towns and cities

throughout Poland The Jews were
murdered on the spot or transported to

extermination camps Projects like
Dariusz Popiela’s try to establish the

names of the victims, so
that they are not forgotten

There are initiatives like this all over
Poland For the past thirty years, the

restoration work has been focusing on
a few more towns or villages each year

Michael Schudrich considers
this one of his key tasks

Often, Relatives of the people
buried here come from overseas to

visit the cemeteries —
including from the US

-Part of my family, my niece, my sister, my
brother in law, my wife is there somewhere

-The mass graves are especially
important because we talk about

remembering the Holocaust, and that’s
essential It’s an obligation of every

good human being — not only Jews
and Germans It’s an obligation of every

good human being to remember what
happened in the Holocaust But if you

think about it, perhaps the first thing
we should do is to make sure that every

victim of the Holocaust has a grave,
so far as that’s possible We’ll never get

close to having graves for six million
Jews, but a hundred more, thirty more,

even one more, is
tremendously valuable

It’s sometimes said that
Michael Schudrich is the rabbi

of both the living and
of the dead in Poland

We visit Joanna and Lukasz and their
three children: Ezra, Rema and Ninel

-Ezra was in Budapest for a student
exchange, and his English teacher was

very happy when he came back, and
she was like “very good progress after this

trip” Because there was no
chance to speak Polish there

Joanna is an actress and recently
appeared in a Swedish film Her husband

Lukasz is a theater director and has
been working in Slovakia The couple value

their international contacts Lukasz
admits that living openly as a Jew in

Poland sometimes
makes him feel insecure

-What was the tragic moment after the
war in Poland was 1968 Because it was

the moment half of my
family had to go out of Poland

1968 brought further trauma to Polish
Jews Leading Communist party figures

blamed the student protests at the time
on a “Zionist plot” — triggering months of

anti-Semitic incitement Many Jews who had
survived the Shoah now fled the country

-Half of my life, I was the first person
told there is no anti-Semitism in Poland

But now I am talking to myself:
Where did you have your eyes and ears?

-Anti-Semitism is prevalent throughout
the world It may be worse in Poland; it

may be better But it’s prevalent A lot
has to do with the Catholic Church A lot

has to do with just internet, hate
speech, and all these things But the

result is: in a strange way anti-Semitism
in Poland propelled more kids into our

school And a result is we
became stronger and stronger

-I wouldn’t say that all members of the
Church participate in the dialogue in the

same way I wouldn’t say that all
members of the Church are without

prejudice Maybe — actually, probably
— some are prejudiced But these are

really exceptions to the overall picture
I’m thinking of the Second Vatican

Council, which has had a direct
influence on the atmosphere in Poland and

developments here Believe me: I have the
feeling that something great is happening

The Jewish Community Center or
JCC brings together Warsaw’s five

congregations It’s Sunday Kosher brunch
for Jews and Gentiles The food is good,

and it’s a popular meeting-place
Parents can relax while their kids learn

handicrafts Rabbi Schudrich
is a frequent visitor here, too

Joanna Niemirska and her
children try to come every weekend

Daniel Krajewski is also here Suffering
from Down’s Syndrome is no obstacle to

becoming a fully integrated
member of the Jewish community

-It was very important to me that
I could celebrate my bar mitzvah —

because I was born into a Jewish family
At the ceremony I said two blessings in

Hebrew, and after reading from the
Torah I spoke about the Exodus from Egypt

Rabbi Schudrich simplified the bar
mitzvah procedure for the young man

He has known him since he was a
child Daniel Krajewski took part in the

seminars Schudrich gave in the
1990s, when the Jewish revival began

The young Jewish community in
Poland has made great strides since its

beginnings in a small village in southern
Poland thirty years ago In the 1990s

Schudrich organized seminars on
Jewish life at an education center in

Rychwald Today it’s a hotel and
guesthouse for family get-togethers This

is the rabbi’s first time
back in many years

-I have no idea I haven’t seen these
people in fifteen, twenty years I don’t

know if I’ll recognize them Maybe
the same lady is working here

We would have had classes over here
on the grass Here we would sing; we

would dance We do everything,
trying in our own little safe space

that people see what
Judaism is about

-It’s impossible to be Jewish in
Poland and not feel the presence of the

absence So, of course, it was a
recurrent topic in our conversations,

and of course we never came up with
any extraordinary intelligent solutions

to the problem
because there aren’t any

Decades after the Holocaust,
many Polish Jews had

become disconnected
from their roots

-There are all these stories that there
was a time when people just realized —

some of them — realized
that they were Jewish

-Many of them
-Many of them, you say?

-And even those who knew never had a
chance to experience; they never had a

Shabbat before Some did, but
many didn’t And so it was really a first

chance It was also a chance just to
be openly Jewish You know, you don’t

have to worry about anybody making
a comment or wondering what it meant

In a lot of ways
it all started here

-We had a dinner at Hotel Victoria in
1989 I looked at these kids They were

not kids anymore, they were in their
thirties or forties, and I’ll never forget

we were singing a song called Rozinkes
mit Mandlen — Raisins and Almonds —

and we said: “We will sing a song that
your real mother may have sung to you as

children All those, a hundred, who
remember the song, please join in” And

you know: first ten, then 20, then 80
kids, 80 of the 100, were singing a song

from the subconscious sung
to them by their mother they

have probably never
heard before since then

A year later, in 1990, the
Lauder Foundation funded the

first Jewish heritage
seminars in Rychwald

Thirty years ago, in this kitchen,
a kosher meal was prepared for

perhaps the first time
since the Second World War

-At first it must have been strange for
you What WAS kosher food, for example?

-Sure, at first But
then we got used to it

-Exactly! After the very first workshop,
they knew how to cook The staff got to

know us and they soon learned the
songs that we sang in the dining room They

also knew what happened on Friday evening
and on Saturday morning — for Shabbat

In Communist Poland, Jewish
life was an abstract concept

-Before that, I only knew what I had
seen on TV We didn’t know better We were

anxious about it But that all
changed when Michael came

-When children were listening to him,
speaking about what was Jewish, what

was important to them, it was so
special because he related to them He got

down to their level; he spoke with
them I saw him sitting on the floor and

talk to them, reach out to them This
was the man; this was exactly the man

We realized
he was special

Stanislaw and Monika Krajewski were two of
the first participants They were finally

able to practice their Jewish faith openly
No need to hide and be discreet, as in

the Communist era Stanislaw
even led prayers sometimes

Many of those attending
were Holocaust survivors

-During the war, they were children; they
were not adult Some of them were very

little children or babies Some of
them were eight or ten, and they survived

either because they were hiding
somewhere or they were given to someone

Both of the Krajewskis
were born after the war

-This was very helpful to make me
more knowledgeable and to make me know

how to do things regular Jews do
because this is not something I got from

my family Also this is true about
almost all people of my generation and

younger So those who live in Poland
and were Jewish in some way in the 70s

or in the 80s were mostly very assimilated
and very far from Jewish involvement

-We spend here, you know, eight
weeks a year for six, seven years

The rebirth of Jewish
religious life in Poland began

under somewhat
spartan conditions

-It was wonderful times,
with very warm memories

-And here — this is where
we had a little synagogue

A makeshift synagogue was set up
in an alcove of the education center

It marked a new beginning
for Judaism in Poland

-Everything from basic things of Judaism
— Shabbat, kosher, holidays, history — to

what does it mean to be Jewish, how does it
feel to be Jewish And also getting to know

each other, icebreakers
And sometimes fun things,

we had everybody
re-enact a biblical scene

-And on Friday nights we would put all
the different benches we could find, and

we would have the prayer
outside This was really

everyone’s favorite
moment of the week

But there was also criticism from
unexpected quarters For some people,

Jewish life in eastern Europe was
unimaginable after the Holocaust

-The fact is that Jewish people in
America — particularly people who are

second generation, whose parents fled
the Holocaust — said: “Why do you want

to do it?” And I said to these people,
“Because there are Jewish kids there,

and we must do what we
can to give them a Jewish life”

-It is ridiculous to protest the gains
and the rebirth of Jewish life where it had

been murdered Because you don’t
regulate life Jews have a right to live,

and live as Jews, wherever they want
If this is the only problem, then we need

to get out of Europe Europe is a
graveyard It’s particularly visible

around Auschwitz But if anybody
with Jewish historical sensitivity

travels around Europe,
it is a place of death

-And it was very painful After this
journey back, to be said that you don’t

really exist because there can’t be
Jews here, was very painful And wrong

The seminar buildings where this Jewish
renaissance began are just an hour’s

drive from the infamous
extermination camp Auschwitz-Birkenau

-And there’s another point we should
point out When we go up this kind of

bridge, you look to the left and to the
right, and you see train tracks Lots and

lots of train tracks And you understand
why the Germans built the biggest

death camp here — because you
have the crossroads of so many different

train tracks from all over
Europe That is a clear point

When you see it here, you
understand why did they build it here

-Actually, I think it gets harder to visit
this place than easier When it really

became harder? There were two
things: Once my daughter was born, so in a

natural way when you walk here, you
don’t have children, you think: Could I

have survived? And once you have a
child, you think: Could your child have

survived? And there it becomes a
completely different experience And

the other thing for many, many Jews
it’s, I mean, it’s a horrible place for any

human being to be For Jews
it also becomes personal —

because many of us
have family that was here

-Gas chamber three, Gas chamber four,
Gas chamber five And this is the Sauna

The rabbi travels to Auschwitz-Birkenau
several times each year Many visitors

from Israel and the US ask to meet
him at the site where their relatives were

murdered He’s also a senior religious
advisor to the Auschwitz Foundation,

which administers the site —
as a museum AND a memorial

Rabbi Schudrich says keeping
the memory alive is crucial

-It seems that, in Europe, the shock
of the Holocaust, of this genocide, the

worst genocide in history, kind of
silenced those people who refused to

learn the lesson And it seems now,
75 years later, although many people do

know the lesson, there are those who
never knew the lesson and now want to

speak in a loud voice denying the
Holocaust, belittling the Holocaust So,

well, some people are saying: “No,
we’ve learnt nothing,” that’s not true

Humanity has learned a lot It doesn’t
mean that all of humanity has learned

everything And so, even standing in
a place like this, I am hopeful Because

you just see the numbers of people
visiting today, gives hope that they will

be changed when they leave
How can you be the same person?

Michael Schudrich’s uncle, an Austrian
Jew from Vienna, was a prisoner in

Auschwitz In August 1944, Henry
Starer was brought there on one of the last

deportation trains from the
German concentration camp

at Theresienstadt in
today’s Czech Republic

-When I saw what they did with some of
the babies on the platform of Auschwitz?

They slaughtered them They threw
them up in the air; they shot at them

They came down like birds in
front of their mother How terrible

-This is the place where Josef Mengele
would go like this And my uncle told me

the story when they arrived on the train
from Theresienstadt In Theresienstadt

the World War I veterans were treated
better because there was some level of

Jewish self-government in
Theresienstadt — some level — but at

least there the veterans were treated
better Here they were lined up five-

five-five And they were in the same line
as some World War I veterans Mengele

sent the veterans straight to the gas
chamber, and my uncle and his brother

followed immediately with them,
figuring they were going to a better

place — based on their experience of
Theresienstadt And then Mengele had

his guards kick my uncle and his brother
to the other side, saying: “You, Jew,

can’t decide your fate” A Jew
couldn’t even decide to be killed And so,

ironically, Mengele saved my
uncle’s life Which is bizarre

Henry Starer survived Auschwitz and
emigrated to the United States, where he

started his own family Michael
Schudrich learned a lot from his uncle

-My uncle was one of those who
spoke quite frequently about it So I can’t

remember if I was eleven or thirteen;
certainly by thirteen But I can’t tell you

from what age Certainly when
I was in high school, this was

something Uncle Henry
would tell me about

-How important was this for your
idea to be interested in Eastern Europe?

Did this play
a role or not?

-Absolutely, yes To what extent? The
idea is that I very much took away from

that, I think I took away from
that: you can’t be indifferent

If something is wrong,
you have to try and fix it

It’s December — Christmas in
Warsaw, the capital of Catholic Poland

The Jewish community is celebrating
Hanukkah, the festival of lights

The opening event is, as
always, open to the public

Warsaw’s Jews are no longer
a clandestine community

-Simply put, it was the
place I was supposed to be

Michael Schudrich has dedicated the past
thirty years of his life to re-establishing

Jewish religious life in Poland —
committed to keeping memory alive, and

to working for the
present and the future

-It looks like it’s still the
place I am supposed to be
