Jewish Culture in Copenhagen presents a little known European-Jewish history with the Romanian film Aliyah Dada from 2015.
The non-Jewish director of the film, Oana Giurgiu, raised under oppressing Communist dictatorship, starts a historical and geographical journey to discover the reality behind the Romanian Jews’ exodus and aliyah (return to Israel). The story starts out with the adventure of the first pioneers who abandoned their life in Eastern Europe at the end of the 19th century to survive in hostile Palestine of the Ottoman Empire, then it reveals the terrors of Romania of the Second World War and follows the Romanian communists’ secret deal with Israel to trade the Romanian Jews for money. The historical tale is created in Dada style as a tribute to the Dada pioneers Tristan Tzara and Marcel Janco, both of Romanian-Jewish descent.
English subtitles.
The screening is organized upon completion of Romania’s chairmanship of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance in March 2017 in cooperation with the Embassy of Romania.
