July 29 – 4 pm
Unbroken
Against all odds, the seven Weber siblings who are the subject of Unbroken manage to stay together through the Holocaust thanks to acts of courage, resilience and a series of miracles. After their mother is deported from Berlin to Auschwitz for being Jewish and part of the resistance, the children are slated to follow days later on a different transport. Instead, their father arranges to baptize and then hide them on the farm of a Christian couple outside the city, where they fend for themselves for two years before ending up in a displaced person’s camp. The youngest child, Ginger, is the mother of Beth Lane, the documentary’s writer, producer and director. Relying on journal entries, archival film footage, photos and interviews, Lane lovingly documents this poignant story of the siblings who arrive in the United States together, only to be separated for many decades. She leaves us understanding the impact of courageous individual choices through a film that inspires hope and compassion.
