An ordinary town in south Poland – an extraordinary reconciliation. Jewish and Catholic neighbours separated by the devastation of World War Two are finally reunited. A touching and often funny story of common human decency overcoming religious division and devastating history, all thanks to the inspiring efforts of eccentric English professor Jonathan Webber, and the Polish residents of
a small town called Brzostek.
