synopsis
From his boyhood home in Queens to his father's boyhood home in Eastern Europe, filmmaker David Greenwald takes you through a multi-generational journey of family, community, faith, and the unspeakable horror of WW2. My Father's House is an intimate glimpse at one man's unbreakable spirit, stubborn righteousness, and fierce commitment to building and rebuilding his own destiny.
