Introductory remarks by filmmaker Jonathan Durand |Memory is our Homeland (Canada, 2019) | Dir.: Jonathan Durand | From 1942 to 1952, more than 18,000 Polish women and children lived across Africa as World War II refugees. They were deported as children in 1940 from across Eastern Poland to Siberia, before surviving an epic odyssey to refugee camps across East Africa. Now, as elderly women, they’re still trying to make sense of a childhood not only beyond imagination, but also mysteriously left out of history books. Mixing interviews, footage shot on location, lost WW2 newsreels, personal photos, and home movies, Memory is our Homeland represents a fragmented inheritance that the filmmaker struggled to piece together over a decade, coming to terms with a family history rooted not only in forced deportation and exile, but in erasure. (92 min., Eng., Pol., Swahili & Belarusian, Heb. & Eng. subt.). Supported by: Embassy of Canada in Israel.
