A deeply religious husband immigrates to America while his wife struggles desperately to support her three children in pre-WWII Polish Ukraine before finally making her way to New York to join her husband. The highest grossing Yiddish film of its time, A Little Letter to Mother is one of the last Yiddish films made in Poland before the Nazi invasion. This wonderful old-fashioned melodrama fraught with historical significance is one of the precious few documents of the Polish Jewish community left to us. The film was made on location in Warsaw and the Polish countryside. Originally released on September 14, 1939, two weeks after the German blitzkrieg over Poland, at the Belmont Theater in New York.

PLEASE NOTE:  This is a rare film.  There are some dark scenes and some of the sub-titles are white-on-white, making them difficult to read.  This VHS is from the only supplier we've been able to locate, so we offer it even though the master elements are not as pristine as we might wish.
