The deadly realities of "Being Jewish in France"


Those who have seen Yves Jeuland's's comprehensive, sobering documentary "Being Jewish in France" were as horrified by the recent terrorist killings of seven people, including  four Jews, three of them children, by a self styled Al Qaeda follower, but were perhaps not totally taken by surprise. This chronicle of the love/hate relationship between Jews and their native France, the firs country to offer them citizenship, from the polarizing Dreyfus Affair of the late 19th century, to the round-ups during the Nazi Occupation, to the ongoing tension with Arabs in the present day, serves as a reminder and a wake-up call to those who think the horrors of anti-Semitism are a thing of the past. A few screenings remain of this important film, sponsored by Brandeis University's National Center for Jewish Film, at the Museum of Fine Arts, including tonight at 6:00pm; Sunday, March 25 at 1:00pm; and Wednesday, March 28, at 6:00pm. The MFA is at 465 Huntington Ave, Boston.
