In the autumn of 1942, Adam and Bronisława Kowalski from Ciepielowo hid their Jewish neighbors regardless of the fact that during World War II it was a crime punished with death. In the morning of 6th December 1942, the division of military police surrounded their house as well as the houses of Obuchowicz, Kosior and Skoczylas families… The feature attempt to recreate a life in a typical Polish town and Polish-Jewish relationship at the time of German occupation complemented with the relations of eye witnesses.
