JCC Chicago Jewish Film Festival - A Blind Hero
The story of Berlin brushmaker Otto Weidt's cunning rescue of his blind and deaf Jewish employees from the Nazis, all while he himself was almost completely blind.
A powerful docu-drama of a little known story of love, devotion, and selflessness. Award-winning journalist, Inge Deutschkron, provides her incredible personal account of Weidt's efforts to save her, her mother, and the rest of his employees from almost certain death.
