Mostly shot in 1982 and edited decades later, this unsettling documentary performs a delicate balancing act, examining through their testimony the Christian motivations and deeds of four notable Righteous Gentiles of the Holocaust, while contrasting their determined rescue of Jews with an overarching ethical Christian failure forcefully conveyed by an American clergyman. The disparity is jolting and amounts to a probing assessment, like much of Sauvage’s work, of personal and collective responsibility.

After the film, stay on for a recorded conversation with Pierre Sauvage. Pierre discusses the complex role Christians played during the Holocaust with actor Martin Sheen, Christian Holocaust scholar John Roth, Jewish scholar Susannah Heschel (daughter of Abraham Joshua Heschel), and prominent thinker and writer Rabbi Irving Greenberg.

Please join us on Sunday, March 21 at 3 pm for our live talkback with Pierre Sauvage as he discusses all of the films in his retrospective.
