Book Now for Film Why the Jews?

Report by Lydia Drukarz

BBUK will be holding its own heritage event on the evening of Sunday 15th September. We will be screening a wonderful film, directed and produced by Canadian producer, John Curtin, called ‘Why the Jews?’, in which he answers the question of why Jews have been so successful, despite enduring such hatred and prejudice across the years. 

The stunning accomplishments of the Jews raise a question no film has dared ask before. How do they do it? Some of the world’s most prominent thinkers tackle a mystery shrouded in ignorance and prejudice. They tear back the curtain on a taboo and draw a startling link between a people’s achievements and the darkest hours in its history.

The film will be followed by a Q&A with John via Skype from Canada with author, journalist and historian, Jeremy Havardi. Refreshments will be served afterwards. 

We hope that you will want to come along, so make sure to book your tickets as early as possible as we expect the event to sell out! Tickets can be booked here
