Yves Jeuland’s masterful, sweeping documentary explores the rich and complex history of Jews in France, the first country to grant Jews citizenship, at a critical time in French-Jewish history. Beginning with Revolutionary cries of Vive la France in Yiddish, the film explores the explosive Dreyfus Affair, the Vichy government’s collaboration with the Nazis, and the absorption of Sephardic Jews from Arab countries in the decades after WWII.

Contains interviews with more than a dozen leading French politicians, intellectuals and artists including Robert Badinter, Théo Klein, Jean-Claude Grumberg, Marceline Loridan- Ivens, and Jean Benguigui.
