Judith

Movie Summary

Judith is a historical drama film based on true events. Judith Auerbach (Sophia Loren) is a German Jew whose husband, General Hans Verner (never seen on screen), was a high-ranking Nazi official during the Second World War. Asked to choose between his military career and his Jewish wife, Verner chose his career; Auerbach was sent to the Dachau concentration camp, but survived. This film follows Judith's odyssey to Israel, where she searches for her son (who never appears on camera) and vows to bring her nefarious husband to justice. While in Israel, Judith lives on a kibbutz and works with Haganah commander Aaron Stein (Peter Finch). The pair conclude that Verner has fled to Syria. Now, they must sneak across the border and try to apprehend him before he is able to find passage to another continent. Judith is a poignant reflection on the far-reaching devastation caused by the Holocaust.
