They did so via the saving grace of the the Polish Jewish Bund's great spokesman, Artur Zygielbojm—-a tragic hero who sacrificed his life to bring the first news of the Holocaust to the West. Newborn's discovery links him by surprise to Zygielbojm's surviving niece, a 75 year-old champion ballroom dancer who brings him under her spell, inducing him to dance-—not to mourn, but to celebrate Jewish survival.
