The other Nakba: New film will tell Jewish refugees ‘ story

Coming soon – a new documentary about Jews from Arab Countries. The makers are South-African based Pulp Films. This punchy trailer is not shy to use the expression ‘Jewish Nakba’ to describe the forced exodus of 870,000 Jews.

The title ‘Quiet Triumph’ was chosen to show the refugees’ determination not to dwell on the past. They quietly got on with lives  after their uprooting – and did well in their new countries.  In spite of all the trials and tribulations, they triumphed.

If you would like to contribute towards the funding of this film, please write to Jason Hoff at [email protected]
