Stockholm Syndrome (2007-2010)

Directed by: Amit Epstein
Duration: 70′
Screening time: Saturday, 5th May, 18:15

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion between Amit Epstein, director of the film and David Stavrou, journalist. Participants will discuss the return of third-generation Holocaust survivors from Israel to Europe. To a Europe that cast out their grandparents and from an Israel where Europe for a long time was displayed only as the continent of the Holocaust. Moderator: Ricki Neuman

“My grandparents’ house was, and still is, a haven. Today I know that other such “European havens” are scattered throughout Israel, and, once joined together, they may form a sort of natural reserve, an image of “classical Europe”, where each day starts out in 1948, but ends in 1938.”

Stockholm Syndrome is a video trilogy about the tendencies of Jews to return to Europe, as many young Israelis find themselves attached to a homeland in which they were never born, while perfectly aware of the victim-victimizer relationship, which is well rooted in the fabrication of Israelism.

The screening and panel are dedicated to Naomi (Klara) Bernstein-Arden (z”l).
