A fascinating story of friendship and courage, 17 August 2012
Author: Susan May from Peth

Holocaust movies are not easy viewing. However, they are usually uplifting dramas telling stories of incredible human courage and endurance, alongside horrific cruelty. I see everyone that I can, not because I need to know any more about the holocaust but because I feel we need to bear witness to this tragedy in our history. There are still stories to be told and we should honour those stories by listening, reading and watching.

The children in this German language film are fabulous and the friend who attended the preview with me said that she had to keep repeating to herself that it wasn't real, so she didn't break down. It is also a fascinating story of friendship and courage.
