:: Europa Europa

‘Europa Europa’ tells the story of Solomon Perel, a teenage Polish-German Jew before, during and after World War II. A young teen when the Holocaust begins, Solomon is separated from his family in the early days of the war. Thereafter he adopts various lifesaving identities, posing as a German orphan and is taken into the heart of the Nazi world as a ‘war hero’ and eventually becomes a leader of a Hitler youth group.

Based on a true story, ‘Europa Europa’, directed by Agnieszka Holland, is a masterpiece. Holland has taken a touching subject, aligned a magnificent cast and has successfully processed a movie that captures the realities of war. Made in 1990, it has English subtitles and stars Marco Hoschneider as Solomon Perel.
