This film chronicles the Jewish community in Stanislawow, Eastern Galicia, through the story of Malka Rosenthal. Malka was born in Stanislawow in 1934, the eldest daughter of an affluent, intellectual family. During the German occupation, her mother and younger brother were murdered. Her father joined the partisans, and Malka was handed over to a Polish family. For 18 months, she was kept hidden in a barrel under ground. After liberation, Malka was one of the survivors aboard the illegal immigrant ship Exodus, eventually arriving in Israel in 1948. Malka rebuilt her life through her work and education, and by starting a new family. Her touching life story has been published and translated into many languages, portrayed on stage and described in childrens books.

This film is part of the Witnesses and Education project, a joint production of the International School for Holocaust Studies at Yad Vashem and the Center for Multimedia Assisted Instruction of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In this project, survivors recount their life stories before, during and after the Holocaust. Each title is filmed on location where the events originally transpired.

This education material specified for high school.
