at the 2016 Toronto Jewish Film Festival

CANADIAN PREMIERE
DOCUMENTARY, 2015
SLOVAK WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES
RUNNING TIME: 81 MIN


A compelling tribute to a vanishing community. Slovakian-Canadian photographer Yuri Dojc undertakes a personal journey into the past and present of Slovakia’s Jewish community. Through interviews with Shoah survivors who remained in Slovakia, as well as the story of Yuri’s parents who spent the war in hiding, the film looks at both the help Slovakian Jews received and the anti-Semitism they experienced. It is Yuri’s stunningly beautiful photographs that let us experience the vibrant cultural history of Slovakian Jews through the now abandoned schools, synagogues and mikvahs he lovingly captures with his camera.

Join the Neuberger and Alliance Francaise Toronto for this film screening and discussion with special guests Jérome Prieur and Michael Marrus.

Hélène Berr, a young brilliant Jewish female student of literature at the Sorbonne University, lives in Paris during the Nazi occupation. She keeps a diary from 1942 till 1944, wherein she describes the mounting horrors of the persecution of the Jews. In 1944 she is arrested with her parents and sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau. She dies in Bergen-Belsen, a few days before the liberation of that concentration camp. Her secret diary was kept in the family and finally published in 2008.

Utilizing previously unseen footage shot in occupied Paris, official archival images and family photographs including remarkable home movies, French director Jérôme Prieur offers a highly original and captivating adaptation of Hélène Berr’s journal. Jérôme Prieur's documentary finely illustrates the dual legacy of Hélène's Berr's journal, that of a remarkable literary work as well as a valued historical account of life in occupied Paris at that time. The journal, discovered and published more than 60 years after it was written, became an immediate bestseller in France. "Hélène Berr : Journal 1942-1944" has since been translated and published in more than 25 countries. Watch Trailer

The English version of the film will be screened. Released in 2013 (1h05)

Dr. Michael Marrus, historian, Chancellor Rose and Ray Wolfe Professor Emeritus of Holocaust Studies at the University of Toronto, will present the documentary in both French and English. 

Writer and filmmaker Jerome Prieur has directed many documentaries that explore History, Archeology, Literacy and Art as le Réveil d’Apollon. In addition to the three major series on the origins of Christianity Corpus Christi (with Gérard Mordillat), he has directed several films about the Occupation, Le Mur de l’Atlantique, René Char, nom de guerre Alexandre, A propos du procès Barbie, Dieppe 19 août 1942 as well as the adaptation of Hélène Berr newspaper, Hélène Berr , a young girl in occupied Paris , which has just received the Critics Award for Best Documentary 2014. It is also the author of a dozen trials : Séance de lanterne magique (Gallimard), Jésus contre Jésus (Points Seuil), Proust fantôme (Gallimard "Folio"), Rendez-vous dans une autre vie (Seuil), Une femme dangereuse (Editions Le Passage).

Pay what you can. No reservations - first come, first served. Discussion will take place in English and French. More information

FREE EVENT - LIMITED SEATING - REGISTRATION REQUIRED BY FEBRUARY 14

It has been almost one year since Austrian researchers published the full extent of Nazi collaboration by one of that country’s leading cultural institutions, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.
Now, a century after the start of World War I and 75 years since World War II began, the historian and the leader of the Orchestra involved in documenting that history will discuss their findings for the first time in Canada.
 
Join them as they take part in a unique panel that examines Vienna’s identity as a wellspring of artistic creativity and explores the breakdown of Austrian society during two global conflicts.
Panellists will also discuss Austria’s delayed but now constructive efforts at reconciliation, reflect on how current tensions in Europe alarmingly mirror past dangerous attitudes and consider the ways to respond.
 
A special commemorative musical performance featuring a chamber music ensemble from the world-renowned Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra will follow.

Film presentation: Numbered, directed by Dana Doron and Uriel Sinai (Israel, 2012; in Hebrew with English subtitles, 55 minutes)

The blue-inked tattoos given to Auschwitz prisoners stripped them of their identities and reduced them to numbers. In this moving documentary, it is precisely these numbers that confer a unique individuality on each of the survivors interviewed. Using evocative photography, the filmmakers of Numbered create an emotional portrait of memory and history.
