The final resting place for Prague's once-vibrant Jewish community and the only place in the city where Jewish children could play during World War II, the Old Jewish Cemetery is the subject of this documentary from Alan Miller and Mark Podwal. With actress Claire Bloom narrating, the film reveals the fascinating history of a burial ground -- 12 layers deep in graves -- that's steeped in historical, mystical and philosophical significance.
