The Jewish heritage o f Lo ndo n’s East End is being highlighted at a free film festival o n the May Day Bank Ho liday—in the heart o f the area where the co mmunity o nce thrived. Co mme nts



‘Sights and So unds o f the Jewish East End’ fo rms the centrepiece o f a film festival at Whitechapel’s Brady Arts centre o n Mo nday as a ‘visual and aural landscape.’

It features co ntributio ns fro m Dr Gil To ffell, who is researching a pro ject o n Jewish cinema culture between the First and Seco nd Wo rld wars. “The fascinating thing is ho w the Jewish co mmunity carved o ut a distinctive lo cal culture despite massive pressure to assimilate,” says Dr To ffell. “This ranged fro m Yiddish theatre to radical left-wing and anti-fascist po litics, as well as a vibrant cinema culture. No w this wo rld has disappeared.” Dr To ffell traces ho w leisure and po litics co mbined as a mix in cinema audito ria such as the Rivo li, where the East Lo ndo n Mo sque stands to day, and the Peo ple’s Palace no w part o f Queen Mary’s Mile End co llege campus which is also the site o f the o ldest Jewish cemetery in Britain. The East End Film Festival screens the classic 19 6 2 sho rt ‘The Vanishing Street’, which examines the disappearing way o f life o f Whitechapel’s Jewish co mmunity.
