Film: My Italian Secret: The Forgotten Heroes of the Holocaust

Would you risk your life to save a stranger? My Italian Secret tells the story of Tour de France cycling champion Gino Bartali and other courageous Italians who carried out ingenious schemes to rescue Jews, partisans and refugees from Nazi-occupied Italy during WWII. This film reveals the dramatic stories of individuals who carried out secret underground activities throughout Italy that have remained largely unknown – until now.

Elizabeth Bettina, a consulting producer of My Italian Secret: The Forgotten Heroes and author of the book “It Happened in Italy: Untold Stories of How the People of Italy Defied the Horrors of the Holocaust,” will be present to introduce the film and to add her insights during a talk-back following the film. Her book inspired the production of this documentary.
