Unlikely Heroes

Unlikely Heroes, a documentary feature film, presents previously unknown stories of extraordinary men and women who exemplified the highest level of courage and human dignity during the most desperate days of the Holocaust.

These unique and inspiring stories add a new chapter to the story of Jewish resistance under the most trying circumstances.

The film utilizes rare recently discovered film and photos from archives across Europe, enhanced by new sequences filmed in the locations where many of these stories occurred.

Narrated by Sir Ben Kingsley
