SYNOPSIS

[previous working title: "Expulsion of Jews from Poland in 1968"]

 

Between 1968 and 1970, thirteen thousand Jews were forced to leave Poland. Polish society, culture, economics and politics were impoverished as a result, and the long term effects of this ethnic purge are still with us. The administrative basis was illegal: neither the laws that were in place then nor contemporary law allows discrimination based on ethnicity or religion. Still, to this day, not a single person has stood trial for this alleged crime.

 

Director Michał Zadara and a team of lawyers and historians examine the possibilities of holding people accountable for expelling Jews from Poland fifty years ago. The project’s aim is to notify the prosecutor’s office of a suspicion of committing a criminal offense by people who will be named on stage. The hope is that the state’s prosecutors will then investigate this case and decide whether there are grounds for an indictment against any of those people. 

 

The play called "Sprawiedliwość" ("Justice") is the theatrical explanation of this legal action. Michał Zadara examines to what extent it is possible to determine who was guilty of the expulsion. Can anyone still be accused of unlawful behavior fifty years later? "Sprawiedliwość" is a play about a country where a crime took place and nobody was punished. Just like in Sophocles' "Oedipus Rex".
