“A remarkable glimpse of Jewish life before the Holocaust… THREE MINUTES is FASCINATING… ELECTRIFYING… An invaluable document and a humbling memorial…” – IndieWire

Three minutes of home movie footage, mostly in color, shot by David Kurtz in 1938, are the only known moving images left of the Jewish inhabitants of Nasielsk, Poland, before the Holocaust. Those precious minutes are examined in intricate detail to unravel the human stories hidden in the celluloid. Tracing the story of those three minutes begins with the journey of Glenn Kurtz to discover more about his grandfather’s film, ultimately leading to identifying people and places otherwise erased from history, and helping to connect a Holocaust Survivor with his lost childhood.

The original home movie taken by David Kurtz in 1938 was restored and archived at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum – https://www.ushmm.org/teach/teaching-materials/primary-sources-collections/three-minutes-in-poland/lesson/archival-film-footage.

World Premiere at the Venice Film Festival followed by Telluride, Toronto and Sundance. Winner of the 2022 DocAviv inaugural Yad Vashem Award, the Brussels International Film Festival European Young Jury Award and a Special Mention, the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival Jury Award for Best Doc, and Virgin Dublin International Film Festival Award for Best Doc.
