Episode Recap

Within a hundred city blocks surrounded by an eight-foot wall, half-a-million human beings are confined. Each morning the trucks come and people are carted away to be tortured and killed. Those who manage to avoid or survive this ordeal wage a day-to-day struggle against the poverty of spirit that comes with total subjugation. This is the Warsaw Ghetto in Nazi-occupied Poland during the Second World Ward. In the midst of this all-too-real nightmare, Rabbi Adam Heller, the gentle leader of an Orthodox Jewish congregation, strives to hold his flock together and communicate to them his own idealism, strength, courage and faith.
