As Far As Makó From Jerusalim: We Came Back

| Hungary | 1995 | 63'

WE CAME BACK, the last part of the series of AS FAR AS MAKÓ FROM JERUSALIM, shows a meeting of orthodox Jews from all parts of the World in Makó to commemorate at their -or their parents- native town the 50th anniversary 1994 of the Holocaust and the death of the last Rabbi of Makó. This is not only an opportunity to meet old friends and exchange memories of the past. It also shows that Jewish life and tradition almost ceased to exist in Makó. how little has remained can be seen from the visit of the Jewish cemetery, the synagogue, which will be restored with financial support of the visitors, and the former house of the Rabbi.
