"Where are the Jews?!?"
7 September 2000 | by (Rochester, MN) – See all my reviews

French Catholic boarding house school children meet political war *and* racial war first hand.

Low budget, but high on content, this film takes on racial hatred not with guns, but with a strike-force of touching personal engagements. Children must come to grips with their own stereotypes and bigotry and how better than through other children under the hopeless oppression of Nazi genocide. They win!

Add to the personal touch the sense of Christmas spirit when one of the children, forced to answer the German officer's question, "Where are the Jews?", retorts "Right there!" (pointing to Mary and Joseph in the Christmas play they were rehearsing).

A nice story for families who want to get a fresh perspective on Holocaust suffering from a child's eye. I recommend it.
