Movie Summary

Director:
Richard Trank
Released:
2003
Rating:
Not Available
Unlikely Heroes revolves around the largely untold tales of Jewish heroism during the Nazi regime. The story is told by the famous Ben Kingsley as the narrorator. The film is filled with touching personal artifacts and rare footage from the Holocaust era. These artifacts and footage were found in an extensive search throughout various European archives. Though much of the credit for the decline of Adolph Hitler rightfully falls on the shmilatires of the countries that beat him and defeated him. Unlikely Heroes offers members of the Jewish resistance a chance to discuss their personal contributions to ending and occasionally merely surviving one of the most violent periods in history. The film is directed by Richard Trank.
