Bricha - The Escape

Bricha - Die Flucht

After the end of World War II the suffering and persecution of Holocaust survivors in Eastern Europe was still not over. In 1946 a pogrom in Poland claimed the lives of many Jewish refugees.
This was the final straw for more than 100,000 Jews who took flight to the west. For many refugees this es cape was made possible by the secret rescue organisation «Bricha». Founded by former resistance fighters, «Bricha» took up the task of assisting fugitives to enter the west illegally so that they could start a new life. The film tells the story of «Bricha» using testimonies of members and refugees as well as newly discovered film material.
