Jew Mechanic is a work in progress chronicle of an Immigrant Polish Jew’s triumph over anti-Semitism and subsequent participation in the American Dream.
We are made privy to the travails of an orphaned four-year-old Polish Jew who, when his parents are killed by Cossacks, is forcibly adopted by a farmer who both brutalizes and enslaves the child. We watch as the boy embraces the opportunity to steal his way to America and begin his journey as an American.
He overcomes barriers of bigotry and anti-Semitism, learns the language, fights the wars and becomes an expert mechanic during the very birth of the automobile industry.
We are both beguiled and appalled by the events that cause him to evolve into the man he becomes.
