Documentary Details Jewish Migration From Russia To Richmond In The 1980’s And 1990’s

“Draw Back The Curtain,” a documentary about the last major Jewish Migration from the former Soviet Union, is set to premier in Richmond November 10th. The project and the film are a Jewish Family  Services and University of Richmond Hillel collaboration.

At the end of the Cold War, the Former Soviet Union allowed more than one million jews to emigrate to America and Israel, but there was a catch.

Shir Bodner was director of the three-year project in conjunction with the University of Richmond. Premiere is November 10th at the Modlin Center and more information is available at Drawbackthecurtain.com.
