Created to bring the world's attention to the activities of Adolf Hitler, German-Jewish composer Kurt Weill's 1937 opera-oratorio "The Eternal Road" incorporated readings from the Torah and Biblical history into its gripping story of Jews hiding out in a synagogue during a frightful pogrom. This documentary chronicles the collaboration between Weill, director Max Reinhardt, and activist Meyer Weisgal in creating the piece. 58 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.
