Jewish Film Festival of Central NJ - Back to Berlin

In 2015, the European Maccabi Games were held in Germany for the first time since World War II, at the Waldbühne Stadium, site of Hitler’s infamous 1936 Berlin Olympics. The film follows 11 Israeli motor-bikers carrying the Maccabi torch from Tel Aviv to Berlin, retracing the route of early 1930s riders who set out from the British Mandate of Palestine to spread the word about the first Maccabi Games throughout Europe. Each destination holds a chilling resonance for the riders as they share how their families perished or managed to survive. Seven are descendants of Holocaust survivors, two are actual survivors and two are grandsons of original 1930s Maccabi Riders.

Nominated for Best Documentary and Best Director of a Feature Documentary (Catherine Lurie), International Filmmaker Festival of World Cinema, Berlin 2018
