Jewish Memories of Pittsburgh's Hill District

From 1890 to 1950 Pittsburgh’s Hill District was an ethnically diverse neighborhood populated with immigrants who were starting a new life in America. This documentary focuses on the Jewish residents who lived and worked there. Through historical photographs, original paintings, and personal memories from those who grew up there, JEWISH MEMORIES OF PITTSBURGH HILL DISTRICT presents a vivid picture of the sights, sounds, joys and struggles of a vibrant community at a time in this country when immigrants were welcomed and neighbors helped each other regardless of their differences.
