Synopsis

This gripping drama highlights a shameful, little-known episode in France's wartime past. An American journalist in Paris uncovers the story of 10-year-old Sarah, a young girl caught up in the notorious 'Vel d’Hiv' round up of Jews by the French authorities. The quick-thinking Sarah hides her little brother in a cupboard and takes the key, promising him she will return, unaware that her intended destination is a concentration camp. As the heart-rending mystery takes shape, you'll be unable to tear yourself away.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
