Traces

The Jewish community of Ciechocinek, Poland, was entirely annihilated in the Holocaust. Two generations later, a young Russian woman sets out on a quest to re-establish a family connection broken by the Holocaust and the Iron Curtain. She seeks information on her grandfather's vanished family and tries to locate the descendants of his aunt, known to have left Poland before the war. This search takes her to Ciechocinek, where all traces of any Jewish presence have been erased. But today the Internet provides a new kind of tool for tracing relatives.
