“Je Suis Charlie, Je Suis Juif”
Please see Yves Jeuland’s documentary Being Jewish in France (Comme un Juif en France).
“There's a Yiddish saying: 'Hard to be a Jew'; Jeuland's film adds the qualifier 'in France.' Unlike similar American docs, Being Jewish in France is neither a bittersweet nor a triumphalist tale of adaptation and achievement.” —Village Voice
