Cast & Crew
In 1899, in the city of Lodz, Poland, a Jewish choral ensemble was formed. For four decades, HaZamir flourished until the Holocaust nearly silenced it forever. One hundred years later, in the summer of 1999, the spirit of HaZamir was rekindled when the 42-member Zamir (Hebrew for "nightingale") Chorale of Boston made a commemorative tour of Eastern Europe to perform in the very places where the HaZamir movement began. The program documents the journey and the choir's attempt to restore the spirit of HaZamir.
