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>

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 »


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 »

Another Good Story of Human Sympathy That Looks Like "Rescuers: Stories of Courage"
3 April 2005 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

On June 22nd, 1941, the city of Przemysl, Poland is divided between German and Russian. When the German invades the city, the Nazis send the Jews to a ghetto. The young Catholic Fusia Podgorska (Kellie Martin), alone with her young sister, lodges and hides many Jews in the attic of her house along two and half years until the end of the war. "Hidden in Silence" is another good story of human sympathy in World War II. This film looks like "Rescuers: Stories of Courage", and is also based on a true story. Unfortunately, the actress Kellie Martin performs a strong and powerful lead character, but she is very weak for such a role. In many dramatic situations, the expression of her face is not convincing. I have noted that many IMDb Users liked her performance, but I am not sure whether they like her wonderful character or her performance indeed. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Ocultos no Medo" ("Hidden in Fear")
