When Ruth's husband dies in New York, in 2000, she imposes strict Jewish mourning, which puzzles her children. A stranger comes to the house - Ruth's cousin - with a picture of Ruth, age 8, in Berlin, with a woman the cousin says helped Ruth escape. Hannah, Ruth's daughter engaged to a gentile, goes to Berlin to find the woman, Lena Fisher, now 90. Posing as a journalist investigating intermarriage, Hannah interviews Lena who tells the story of a week in 1943 when the Jewish husbands of Aryan women were detained in a building on Rosenstrasse. The women gather daily for word of their husbands. The film goes back and forth to tell Ruth and Lena's story. How will it affect Hannah?Written by

This film tells the story of a Jewish daughter of a WWII survivor, who travels from New York to Germany to uncover her mother's secret and traumatic past.
"Rosenstrasse" tells the periphery of a very dark part of modern history. As a result, it is not as grim as I thought it would be. In fact, it is a very touching film. Ruth and Lena, and also the women of Rosenstrasse exhibit positivity, unwavering hope and unconditional love during the dark times in Germany, and it is deeply moving. It showcases the best of humanity, and offer a glimmer of hope in a time that is unimaginable to people nowadays. The ending is very poignant, and moved me so much. I enjoyed watching "Rosenstrasse".
