Out of the Past: An Examination of Jewish Characters in Contemporary Romanian Cinema

Monica Filimon/Romanian Studies Discussion Group

Romania stands apart from other Eastern European countries with respect to its Jewish ethnic minority. Before the Second World War, 800,000 Romanian Jews lived and thrived especially in the towns and cities of the country at the time; after 1945, more than half of the Jewish population was exterminated, and 350,000 more would eventually emigrate to Israel with the "help" of the communist authorities in the 1960s and 1970s. Today, the Romanian-Jewish community totals barely 10,000 people, the lowest number in Eastern Europe.

Award-winning Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has just been nominated for a Grammy. Yes, a music award. A sample from her Ted Talk "We Should All Be Feminists" is featured in Beyoncé's hit song "Flawless." Adichie's nomination, a first for a Nigerian writer, is an exciting demonstration of contemporary intersections of the literature of the African Diaspora and other arts. Adichie first gave her talk to a live audience, it later "went viral" on the video sharing platform Youtube (where Beyoncé accessed the work so inspirational to her developing feminist identification), it was initially published via Kindle, and is forthcoming as a paperback.
