Friday Film: Sex and Subversion in Communist Poland



In the aftermath of Israel's victory over Egypt and Syria - key Soviet allies - in the 1967 Six Day War, the Soviet Politburo, which had already barred Jews from positions in the Communist Party, seized on the war as a way to weaken Poland's opposition movement and purge what they labeled the Jewish "fifth column." As a result, many Poles - regardless of whether or not they were Jews - were branded as Zionists and stripped of citizenship. "Little Rose," a film set in Warsaw in the days leading up to 1968's student riots, tells the story of one of them.

The film, which won the top award at this year's Polish Film Festival, and screens on November 14 as the closing film at the Boston Jewish Film Festival, is based loosely on the life of the Polish writer Paweł Jasienica. After Jasienica's death, it emerged that his wife had been an agent of the security services and had informed on her husband for years, to the point of reporting on his funeral. In "Little Rose," director Jan Kidawa-Błonski turns his focus to the informant herself. Like the 2006 German film "The Lives of Others," "Little Rose" is a compelling portrait of Soviet repression and its insidious perversion of love.

Recipe of the week

Torzelli

Deep-fried curly endive.


Gastronomically speaking, you might say that it was Hanukkah all year round in the Roman Ghetto--the enforced, segregated area where Rome's Jewish community lived from the 16th-19th century. Resources were scarce during those centuries, and frying foods in oil was one of the cheapest--and therefore most common--ways to make dinner.

As a result, oily dishes like carciofi alla Guidia (fried artichokes), fritto misto (fried mixed vegetables), and filetti di baccala (fried cod filets) were commonplace throughout the year, not only in celebration of the Maccabees' miraculous Hanukkah lamp.
torzelli for hanukkah
When Hanukkah arrived, however, neither of the traditional fried dishes familiar to American Jews--latkes and sufganiyot--were on the menu. Instead, Roman Jews celebrated the festival of lights with lemony fried chicken and torzelli, a savory side dish made of curly endive that is battered and deep-fried. Curly endive (sometimes labeled frisee or chicory in grocery stores) comes into peak season during the cold winter months--not coincidentally, right around Hanukkah. Those thrifty-by-necessity Roman Jews understood that seasonal cooking equaled economical cooking.

Dredged in flour and slipped into sizzling oil, torzelli adds a touch of much-needed bite and freshness to the winter table. And brightened with salt and lemon zest, it boldly rivals a plate of latkes.

The Yahel Social Change Program is an exciting 5-month service learning experience for young adults between the ages of 21 and 27.

Offered in collaboration with a grassroots non-profit organization working in the Ethiopian community in the fields of community empowerment and education, this is a unique opportunity to take part in meaningful and innovative social change efforts in Israel. Yahel participants live, volunteer and learn alongside young adults from the local Ethiopian-Israeli community.  Substantial grants and scholarships are available through Masa Israel Journey.
