Marta Marín-Dòmine, 1930-1942. Mémoire juive du quartier Marolles-Midi, Bruxelles, 2012. (no. 1) [1930-1942: Jewish Memories of the Marolles-Midi District of Brussels]
1930-1942: Jewish Memories of the Marolles-Midi District of Brussels is a French-language documentary based on a selection of interviews that the Auschwitz Foundation recorded during the 1990s with survivors of the Nazi camps.
Six adopted ‘Marollians’, whose families left their native Poland because of the anti-Semitism there, Joseph Berman, David Blum, Hélène Gangarska, Baron Maurice Goldstein, Henri Kichka and Maurice Pioro, comment on their journeys.
We follow them as they settle into the district in terms of work, entertainment and political engagement. They recount the fateful period from the entry into force of the first anti-Jewish measures in Belgium to the roundups which, beginning in 1942, via the Dossin Barracks in Mechlin, led to their deportation to Auschwitz, where almost half of Belgium’s Jews were murdered.
This film, directed by Marta Marín-Dòmine and produced for Remembrance of Auschwitz, is on sale at the price of €12.50.
It is in French, with Dutch and English subtitles.
