A Life Apart: Hasidism After World War II (Clip 3 of 5)
The third additional clip featured in the Hiding and Seeking website is also from filmmakers Oren Rudavsky and Menachem Daum's first film, the Emmy-nominated A Life Apart: Hasidism in America. Hasidism's teaching that God could be found all around us faced its ultimate test during the Holocaust. For the Jews that remained in Eastern Europe, WWII brought complete devestation and the death of six million. Among the Hasidim, four out of five were killed. Some Hasidim continued to cling to a God who had seemingly abandoned them. Others could no longer do so.
