Summary The western Ukraine was once home to the largest Jewish community that ever existed. Five million Jews living there had a rich culture, with Jewish music abounding and a thriving Yiddish theater. All this disappeared with the German invasion of Russia in 1941 and the tragic events of the Holocaust. Fading Traces artfully weaves the words of writers such as Rose Auslander, Isaak Babel, Martin Buber, David Kahane, as well as others, with the accounts and experiences of those still living. The film seeks out the traces of this lost world and brings it to life. Since the opening of the Soviet Union, this historic land is once more accessible. Fertile countryside, ancient tombstones, austere synagogues, train stations, markets, cobble stone streets - the fabric of daily life, as well as the dark forbidding sites of mass graveyards. Here is a past that is all but wiped out, except when excavated deftly and respectfully in Fading Traces.
