Based on a true story, Drama, Period and Historical
One of the most shameful episodes in French history is told through the eyes of a group of young children in this poignant, subtitled drama charting the tragic true events of July 1942. Over two days, around 13,000 Jews, including 11-year-old Joseph, his friends and family, are removed from their homes in Nazi-occupied Paris by French police, and imprisoned predominantly at a winter cycling stadium. Almost all of them will end up at the notorious concentration camp, Auschwitz, and few will survive, but in the meantime, they must struggle with the stadium's terrible conditions. Fellow detainee, Dr Sheinbaum, tries his best to ease the situation, as does protestant Red Cross nurse, Annette. But despite the extensive suffering they witness, what appals the pair most is how their own countrymen could have carried out Nazi orders so willingly.
Tragic-comic story about a life-loving Italian Jew who is taken with his son to a Nazi concentration camp, and tries to shield him from the horrors.
