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>

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 »

Touched my heart
20 May 2017 | by dorothy-98611See all my reviews

This movie deserves much better reviews. I've watched many holocaust movies and read many books about survivors of the holocaust. This is an excellent movie. I have watched it twice in one week. This movie, more than most I've seen, portrays the power of God. It is a real story about real people who survived to live successful lives. It is a story of God's love for all His people, Jew and Gentile. It is a story of their love for Him and for one another.

Perhaps, having spent a month in Poland just west of the town where this happened...perhaps because I married a Polish man once....perhaps because I celebrated a Messianic Passover Seder when I was in Poland.... perhaps because my heart cried out for the hearts of the Polish people, most of whom did not do what Fusia and Helena did, when I was there...perhaps because my heart cries for the thousands upon thousands of Jews who were murdered by the Nazis...perhaps because I rode the train through the beautiful Polish country side from Katowice to Kracow and visited the ghetto area and the small museum in Kracow...perhaps because I rode the train into the mountains to the south... perhaps because the Polish people are beautiful and precious in God's sight. I don't know why, but this movie has really touched my heart.

The Podgorski sisters have my undying love and appreciation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Podgórski_sisters
