"...the last Jew has died. The almost 400-year history of the Jewish community is coming to an end..." - this is how the film The Cry of the Black Earth begins. Through a retrospective of Jewish life in the Tarashchany district, the city of Tarascha, and the village of Kivshovate, the film tells the story of the tragedy of the multinational Ukrainian people, when thousands of Ukrainians, Jews, Poles, and Roma were killed. Eyewitnesses and researchers talk about the destruction of an entire community of Jews by the German occupiers and the heroism of the people who saved them.
