Produced for the Women's American ORT and narrated by Eli Wallach, this highly acclaimed documentary describes more than a century of Jewish life in Russia. Stills and archival footage recreate the life of the Russian-Jewish community from the shtetl through the first World War, the Holocaust, the Warsaw Ghetto, the displaced persons camps and the establishment of the State of Israel. L'Chaim: To Life also examines the origins and activities of the ORT, a movement dedicated to the vocational training and education of the Jewish people.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM

"The inescapable fact of man's inhumanity to man and his will to survive is brought into soberingly sharp focus... these are pointed and artistic documentations of a shocking past that deserves to be kept vividly alive."
- A.H. Weber, The New York Times, February 7, 1975
