The goodness of humanity within times of extreme darkness and sorrow are reflected in a mixture of documentary and fiction films that explore how far some people would go during the Holocaust to help those persecuted. From the astonishing story of Antonina and Jan Żabiński, who saved jews by hiding them in the city’s zoo facilities, to the moving story of Diana B, whose rescue campaign during the War was inspired by the Jewish community, to the uplifting dramatisation of Zanis Lipke’s epic rescue operation using his black-market connections, all of these stories work to restore our faith in humanity.
