"Saving the Children from National Socialist Evil"

What You Need To Know:

BARDEJOV is a Holocaust drama, available on Amazon and set in early 1942 in Bardejov, Slovakia. The Slovakian government is increasingly putting restrictions on the Jewish community in Slovakia, including Jews in Bardejov. They’re doing it to appease Hitler’s war-mongering National Socialist tyranny in Germany, in hopes of avoiding a German invasion. The army officials, including the ones in Bardejov, enjoy harassing the Jews, however. The leader of the local Jewish Council, Mr. Lowy, played by Robert Davi, tries to soften the blows to his fellow Jews. However, when the Slovakian government orders the local army to round up 300 unmarried Jewish girls to make them work in a shoe factory far away, Mr. Lowy learns there is no shoe factory. The Jews in Bardejov need a plan to rescue their children.

BARDEJOV is an absorbing, emotional drama, with strong jeopardy and a superb performance by Robert Davi as leader of the Jewish Council. The movie has a strong moral worldview with an anti-totalitarian view, told from a Jewish, biblical perspective. BARDEJOV has some light foul language and light depicted violence.
