Discussion with Film Clips as Part of the New German Stories Series

To reanimate Jewish life in Germany, around 220,000 Russian-speaking Jews came as so-called "quota refugees" from the Soviet Union to Germany in the 90s. Among them were Robert Schulzmann’s parents who decided to leave Riga and begin anew in Germany at this time.

In his documentary film Robert Schulzmann looks back 25 years on. In conversations with his parents and other Jews of various generations who emigrated from the Soviet Union, he asks questions about identity, origin, and finding oneself in Germany.

Robert Schulzmann allows insights into the process of making this film – not yet complete – and shows first clips as food for discussion with the audience. For more information about the director see the website of Robert Schulzmann.

Moderated by Alina Gromova (Jewish Museum Berlin)
