Bardejov (2024). Bardejov: Directed by Danny A. Abeckaser. With Robert Davi, Danny A. Abeckaser, Emma Renana Bardea, Julian Brass. The story of small town Jewish leader Rafuel Lowy, who found an ingenious way to save Bardejov's Jewish population from being sent to Auschwitz during World War Two.

“This movie is a Holocaust story in the vein of Schindleru0026#39;s List, only here the protagonist is not a German businessman, but the Rabbi leader in a small Slovakian town. The antagonists are not German Nazis, but Slovakian police and soldiers who have been thrust into the position of working for the Nazi regime. Further, rather than a businessman come to a new place and dealing with new people, almost all of the characters in this movie knew each other all of their lives prior to the events of the film. Bardejov is also a true story, and the plot develops with a depth and authenticity that only a true story well written and aided by impeccable acting and cinematography can deliver.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe plot culminates in a shocking rescue no less incredible than the one in the Steven Spielberg classic, and the historical truth of it all make this movie not only a must-see for the casual movie-goer, but also a valuable contribution to any cinematic library of Judaism, history, and the Holocaust.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAs a viewing experience, the relationships among the Jews and the relationships between the Jews and those around them grip the audience, sending viewers through a masterfully developed progression of character interaction. The type of breadth and depth of these characters can only come from real people in a true story as told by eyewitnesses who knew how to bring this powerful event to the screen, as this movie does very well.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI highly recommend Bardejov as a holocaust story unlike any other in that while certain elements of any nazi-era film are going to be familiar to the audience, Bardejov brings everything to you with a different kind of flavoring and emphasis provided by the unique characters and relationships centered around the Jewish community in its environment, rather than being a story about good Germans or kind Americans helping out the Jews. At this time in history, with everything taking place in the news surrounding Israel, the Palestinians, protests, and Jews all over the world, Bardejov is an important film to watch to remind the world of Jewish humanity, nobility, and ingenious perseverence at a time of impossible crisis.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eGrab this film and watch it with some friends. It will make for a watch party that will have you talking for hours and thinking for days.”
