hidden jews, hidden history, beautiful movie
5 June 2021 | by nyobatusaSee all my reviews

Thank you for making movie about something that actually matter.

There are more things that 'unite us' then divide us. We always need to remember this sentence. We are whose tradition we keep. E pluribus unum - Latin for "Out of many, one" The main idea of the foundation of United States, not a novel idea, it reflects the "Christian Ideal" based on Bible. For it is the foundation of mankind and that is what Jews have preserved thanks to their faith and courage. It is a story that clearly shows the real purpose of religion, a freedom of choice, faith in God, and resistance to Evil.
