Description

Blending interviews with skillful and powerful dramatic re-enactments, The Invisibles reveals the untold stories of four Jews who were among the nearly 1,700 who survived the war by hiding in plain sight in Berlin. Hanni dyes her hair blonde to pass as Aryan, while Cioma uses his art skills to forge passports in exchange for food rations. Teen Eugen is handed to a succession of anti-Nazi families and Ruth poses as a war widow. Featuring moving performances, this film shows how the combination of skill, luck and help from brave Berliners allowed these people to remain in a city that the Nazis infamously declared ‘judenfrei’ – free of Jews.
