To Save His Life, The Had To Say Goodbye
Matej Minac's heartbreaking and poignant story of one family's experience at the onset of World War II that is inspired by the real life heroics of Nicholas Winton, an English stockbroker who saved hundreds of Czech Jewish children from the Nazis.
The Silberstein's are a large and close knit extended family living a good life in the Czechoslovakian countryside. Believing in the decency of mankind, they don't really pay heed to the Nazi threat. Little by little, as their daily life becomes more intolerable and their personal effects are stripped away, they realize the true horror of what is coming, but it is too late. Knowing their inevitable fate, the Silberstein's have to make their toughest decision ever - do they turn their young son David, over to Nicholas Winton (Rupert Graves) and risk never seeing him again?
