COMRADES

Comrades (2010) documents the lives of Russian Jewish Veterans living in Brighton Beach, New York. As members of the Russian army, these people fiercely fought German occupation from 1941 to 1945. In the 1990s because of the post-war anti-Semitism in their own country, they immigrated to the US and settled in New York City area.
As The New York Times explained, “As Jews who shared both the deprivations of a brutal war against Hitler’s forces and post-war anti-Semitism under a Soviet system they had risked their lives to preserve, their allegiance is not to the former Soviet Union, nor to the Red Army, nor even to Mother Russia, but to one another.” The association today boasts 3,000 members.
