This fascinating historical drama looks at the life of "the Czech Schindler," Zdenek Toman, a controversial figure who was an unsavory politician and dubious entrepreneur, but also the savior of hundreds of Eastern European Jews.
As one of the few films, this one also perfectly described the history of the Czech Republic. It had to be terrible to grow up at the time of the invasion of Warsaw Pact troops into Czechoslovakia, and I can hardly imagine this situation. That's why I admire Jan Palach and never forget, what he did. No one will ever forget, what he did for us.
