Description

Winner of the Audience Choice Award at the 2018 UK Jewish Film Festival. The incredible story of Sally Noach, a Dutch Jewish carpet salesman who rescued hundreds of Jews from Vichy France by forging identification papers and arranging their escape. Equally intriguing is the controversy still surrounding Noach’s exploits: lingering rumours about espionage and black-market profiteering. Finally, with assistance from the filmmaker, researchers and living witnesses whose families he saved, Noach’s children, who knew little of his exploits, attempt to solve the puzzle.
