No Fading Star
No Fading Star
By Celeste Raspanti.

Cast: 4m., 5w., extras. In the monastery of Maria Morgenstern, life seems to go on quite predictably, even in 1943 Germany. But behind the convent walls there is an active underground working to hide and transport Jewish children through Germany to the border. One morning, Klaus, the monastery handyman, brings David and Miriam, two Jewish children. David is angry and threatens to return to the ghetto, insisting that he must return for his bar mitzvah and "stand like a man to say, I am a Jew." Mother Franziska arranges for the bar mitzvah in the face of threats from her sister, who is a Nazi sympathizer, and imminent searches by the local Gestapo commandant. At the very moment the commandant arrives to arrest her, David is finishing his bar mitzvah in the chapel and escapes to the border. This story in based on documentary evidence. Series of platforms. Approximate Running Time: 60 minutes.
