Documentary on Polish-Jewish identity

From The Return
From The Return

The Return — a documentary exploring the unique reality of being Jewish in Poland today — will be screened by the Film Society of Summit on Saturday, May 7, at 8 p.m. The film’s director, Adam Zucker, will lead a discussion following the screening.

Today around 20,000 Jews live in Poland. The shadow of the Holocaust and the oppression during the Soviet era led many Jews to hide their identity from their children. When communism fell in 1989, the door to the past began to open and a buried ancestry was revealed to today’s 20-somethings. 

The Return follows the lives of four young women who were raised Catholic only to discover in their teens that they were Jewish, and focuses on the challenge of forging an identity and a new sense of self with little knowledge of their heritage.

The program will be held at MONDO Summit; admission is $12 in advance, $14 at the door. Contact 973-885-1983 or summitfilm@gmail.com or visit summitfilmsociety.com.
