A Life Not Lived. More than twenty years ago, Centropa’s director, Edward Serotta, traveled to the Mosel River Valley in Germany with seven elderly Jews. They had been born there. They grew up there. And they fled for they lives.Most of them had never been back until that visit in 1995; none would return again. In this poignant film about lives not lived and cherished memories, we understand what these Jews left behind and what their neighbors lost, too.
