Documentary: "The Forgotten Ones: The Story of Yugoslav Jewry"

US Premiere! Our annual Yom Hashoah program is a documentary, first time seen in the United States, The Forgotten Ones. A documentary film that brings to light, for the first time, the Holocaust of the Jewry of former Yugoslavia. German Nazis, Croatian Ustashi, Hungarian Fascists, Bulgarian occupiers, nationalist Serbs, partly Italians, and even the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, all played their different roles in the Holocaust of Yugoslav Jewry. It was an old community from the time of the Second Temple and the expulsion of Sephardi Jews. Ashkenazim and Sephardim, living in harmony, developed a special culture. In the film, 30-year-old Stella sets out on a journey full of revelations to investigate how the Yugoslav community was destroyed in the country without anti-Semitism before the war and what happened to her great-grandfather, who was crowned Righteous Among the Nations, by Yad Vashem. Hebrew/English with English subtitles, 74 minutes.
