Storyline

Poland June 1941, as German troops take over the Eastern side of the city of Przemysl from the Russians. To save their belongings from the Nazis, the Jewish family Diamant transfers them to their 17-year-old Catholic maid Fusia. In return Fusia provides them with food until the ghetto is dissolved, and then hides 13 people in her loft for over two years. However, as the front approaches and two German nurses take quarter in Fusias apartment everything seems to be in vain. Written by Thomas Gaukel <thomas_gaukel@compuserve.com>

Trivia

In the opening scene there is a shot of a man wearing a hat walking with a woman across a bridge. The man is stopped by a soldier and motioned to go back the way he came. The man is the real Jack Zimmermann, the youngest of the 13 being hidden. See more »

Goofs

After the Germans occupy Przemysl, trucks drive through the city announcing that "You are now citizens of the Third Reich". Areas of Poland that had been German prior to Word War I were annexed directly to the Reich. Przemysl however was not part of the Reich but of the "General Gouvernement" of occupied Poland. Poles in this area were not citizens but subjects, with no rights and subject to enslavement and eventual extermination. See more »

A true story beautifully written and acted
10 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is the underrated Kellie Martin's best role. Based on a true story, it tells the story of Fusia's attempt to save the members of the Diamant family and other Jews she meets over time. One of my all-time favorite movie scenes involves an heroic act by Fusia's little sister. All children should see this scene-role models like this are very few and far between. The movie is well written and acted. I am a movie lover and this movie I rate a 10 on imbd's rating system. It is on my top 25 movies of all time and should be put out on video.
