Description

1945. Two Orthodox Jewish strangers are spotted at the train station of a small Hungarian village that is in the middle of preparing for a wedding and quickly becomes abuzz — who are these men? Have they come to reclaim stolen Jewish property? Shot in breathtaking black and white, 1945 revisits a time of uncertainty and chaos, as Hungary rebuilds itself postwar and must define its relationship with Europe's surviving Jews.


The November 12 screening will be preceded by rare archival footage portraying the Jewish community in Hungary in 1936, courtesy of the National Center for Jewish Film and with an introduction by Lisa Rivo, Co-Director of the NCJF.
