In Grandpa, Speak To Me In Russian Louis Lentin explores the history of his paternal grandfather Kalman Lentin, who came to Ireland in the mid -1890s from the small, Jewish village of Zidik, North West Lithuania. Kalman Lentin was one of thousands of Jews who escaped the repressive Russian regime and one of few who came to Ireland. In this docudrama, Louis Lentin and his son, Miki, journey through the Baltic countries to uncover the story of the family and the lost world of the Jewish village.
