LINE 41 REVIEWED
“Line 41” follows two men, as they trace their family’s ties to Lodz, Poland. Lodz was defined by the streetcar Line 41 during the Nazi Occupation in WWII. The streetcar would take average Poles and Germans through the Lodz Jewish Ghetto on a daily basis. The streetcar never stopped, but it gave average citizens a look into how far the Jews had fallen under Hitler. Many Jews would disappear during purges and now present-day survivors want to find out what happened to them.
While not as depressing as some of the Holocaust material I’ve covered this month, it still plays super depressing. The bonus footage doesn’t help a ton, but it expands upon the efforts to make sense of what happened in Lodz. I’d recommend giving it a shot.
