Faynia Williams visits Sejny in north-eastern Poland, a town that was once three quarters Jewish but where no Jews live now.

Yet the synagogue and Jewish cemetery have been restored, there are three Klezmer bands and the town's young people are being introduced to its Jewish history and culture.

All this is the work of the Borderland Foundation, a Polish group whose message of tolerance and cross cultural appreciation is now being heard in countries beyond Poland's borders.
