English summary
Andrzej Titkow and his sister Olga Titkow-Stoklosa retrace the footsteps of their mother's family from Lublin: their great-grandfather Marek Arnsztajn, a famous physician-social worker, whose funeral in Lublin attended by 10,000 people and their great-grandmothers Franciszka Arnsztajn, a poet and independence activist, supporting Pilsudski's legions. The director tries to unravel the mystery of her final years: her baptism in 1939 and decision to willingly move to the ghetto, where she died in unclear circumstances.
The accounts by Lublin researchers and the director's mother paint a picture of assimilated Jews, members of the Polish intelligentsia, open to the world and involved in the struggle for independence.
