Jews in Poland was produced by Simon Federman-Polish State Films and released in the U.S. by the Federation of American Polish Jews. The 42-minute documentary endeavors to show that the Jewish population in Poland was living in comparative security and tranquility under communist rule in the late 1950s, offering as contrast the appalling conditions imposed upon the race by the Nazis in the 1930s and 1940s. One segment features an interview with Ida Kaminska, leading actress of the Jewish State Theatre in Warsaw. Eight years later, Kaminska would achieve worldwide recognition with her performance in The Shop on Main Street. Jews in Poland was narrated in Yiddish by A. Tadrziemec.
