Cinema Chats: “Casablanca,” Jewish Origins and Contemporary Reflections
Hosted By: Museum At Eldridge Street
Casablanca was released in 1942, exactly eighty years ago, and is beloved by many.
Neither the word “Jewish,” nor any reference to Jews is mentioned in Casablanca. Yet, the origins of the film’s narrative were Jewish, and the message of the film centered around the Jewish Refugee Crisis as it emerged in Nazi-controlled countries.
In her talk, Kate will delve into the Jewish connection to Casablanca and examine the cinematic elements that make the film an outstanding viewing experience.
