Kuiv Productions   |   France

Since the Dreyfus affair that tore France apart, the history of France and its Jewish communities has continued to ignite passions. And yet an old Yiddish proverb goes: “Happy like a Jew in France.” From the wave of immigration of Yiddish speaking Jews to the exodus of others from North Africa, from World War I to Vichy, a group of men and women, French Jews or Jews in France, describe with humor and emotion these years filled with happiness and concern. The moving story of Jews in France illustrated by rare archival images, film clips and music. A story of darkness and light. Reason for Submission: This documentary film is made up of many rare archives. Moreover, many of them have never been seen before on TV.
