Munkatch Memories 1933

One of my favorite art books is "A Vanished World " by Roman Vishniac. It portrays Jewish life between the world wars. with a particular focus on Warsaw and Carpathia.
This video that I am presenting shows the whole religious spectrum of Jewish life in Munkacs . The descendants of Munkatch Chassidim live today in New York and Israel. My family is descended from some of the other groups like those seen in the video. I find myself scanning the crowd for their faces. Please click on the link below to view this amazing video.
