My Italian Secret: The Forgotten Heroes

Date: October 15, 2015Time: 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Location:  Atlas Cinemas Eastgate 10

Director: Oren Jacoby • USA • 2014 • English & Italian with subtitles • 92 minutes

The inspiring acts of Italians who rescued their Jewish neighbors are recounted by descendants of rescuers and survivors, as well as those who escaped the concentration camps as children. An estimated 80 percent of Italy’s Jews survived WWII thanks to Italian citizens who risked their own lives to defy the Nazis. One was Tour de France cycling champion Gino Bartali, who ingeniously smuggled fake identity documents for monasteries and convents that were sheltering Jewish exiles. Narrated by Isabella Rossellini.

Co-presented with the Cleveland Italian Film Festival
