Description

The remarkable story of Dr. Mohamed Helmy, the Muslim Egyptian doctor who became the only Arab recognized by Israel as a “Righteous Among the Nations.” A proud humanist who freely criticized the Nazi regime, Helmy risked his life to save Anna Boros, a Jewish girl he knew, by dressing her in a hijab and pretending she was his niece. Shot on location in Berlin, the film incorporates rare photographs and archival footage of Berlin in the 1930s and ‘40s.
