“A Thousand Dollars and Back” is a documentary film based on oral history interviews conducted in 2013 by members of Heritage Organization of Romanian Americans in Minnesota (HORA) and Romanian Genealogy Society. The interview transcripts are permanently housed at the Dakota County Historical Society in South Saint Paul, Minnesota. The film tells the story of early Romanian immigration to the communities of South Saint Paul and Saint Paul, Minnesota from the early 1900s until the advent of World War II through excerpts of interviews with children and grandchildren of the early immigrants.
