Hidden Children - Peoria
Fact is stranger than fiction. But when it is said, fact is more poignant, filled with more outrage, with pain, and more political, legal, and religious twists and turns than fiction. Hidden Children is the true saga of two little French Jewish boys, the Finalys, sheltered by a devout Catholic woman when their parents were sent to their deaths in a concentration camp. The war ended, but another tug of war began over the return to their Jewish heritage. The film highlights the long troubled relationship between Catholic fundamentalism and French republican ideals, Catholicism and Judaism, and the public, the politicians, and the courts. Once there had been L'Affaire Dreyfus, now there was L'Affaire Finaly. The facts by themselves are distressing enough. The performances of the young actors will tug at our hearts.
