Eagle Pharmacy (2006)


A nostalgic reminiscence of the ‘Pod Orłem’ pharmacy that was located in the middle of Krakow’s ghetto in plac Zgody (Concord Square), which is now plac Bohaterów Getta (Krakow’s Ghetto Heroes Square) and of its owner, Tadeusz Pankiewicz.


Since 1941 it was a centre of aid for Jewish people. Pankiewicz gave shelter to the displaced Jews and provided them with necessary medicines, often risking his life.

Filmography - new


Beginning of 1945, Upper Silesia, Poland. The last days of WW2. At the just liberated areas, the Communist Security Service eliminates its enemies under the pretext of punishing “national traitors.” It organizes a labour camp for Germans, Silesians and Poles, at the site of a former Nazi concentration camp, which is named “Zgoda” / “Reconciliation”. Franek, who is in love with a Polish prisoner Anna, joins the camp crew to rescue her. He doesn't know that one of the inmates is Erwin, his German friend, who, like himself, has also loved Anna for a long time. Franek joins Communists in the illusory hope of outsmarting the system.
