Screening of Two Rare Historic Archival Films Produced by JDC
The JDC Archives and Congregation Rinat Yisrael in Teaneck, NJ are partnering to present a screening of two, rare historic JDC archival films from during and after WWII. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Linda Levi, Director of JDC’s Global Archives.
A Tale of Two Worlds (1941) is a promotional film outlining JDCs response to the Nazi advance in Europe, showing aid to refugees around the world. It includes eye-witness accounts and addresses the situation of Jews across Europe including Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, France, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Poland, Lithuania, and Portugal, as well as in Palestine, Shanghai, and Latin America, while highlighting JDC’s work in partnership with other agencies.
A Day of Deliverance (1949) provides an overview of JDC activities on immigration, aid and assistance to displaced Jews in the late 1940s in parts of Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. The film includes rare footage of Holocaust survivors from the Bergen Belsen DP camp departing Germany, Yemenite Jews living in Aden, and detainees leaving the Cyprus detention camps, all traveling to the newly formed State of Israel
