In 1943 Germany infamously declared Berlin “judenfrei”—free of Jews. But there were still 7,000 Jews living in the Nazi capital, hiding in attics and basements and warehouses, many protected by courageous Berliners. This film intensely dramatizes the stories of four young survivors: Cioma (Max Mauff), an art student who uses his skills to forge passports; Hanni (Alice Dwyer), who dyes her hair blond to pass as Aryan; Eugen (Aaron Altaras), who passes through a succession of sympathetic Communist families; and Ruth (Ruby O. Fee), who roams the streets before meeting a surprise protector. Their stories are elegantly interspersed with present-day testimony by the people actually portrayed. In German with English subtitles. Writers: Claus Räfle, Alejandra López. Director: Claus Räfle. (Germany 2017) 110 min.
