“A LoveTo Hide” is the story of a young Jewish girl, Sarah, who is looking to escape the clutches of the Third Reich after seeing her parents and sister brutally slain by a smuggler who betrays them while attempting their way to England. Terrified, she is sheltered by her childhood friend Jean, a homosexual living a clandestine love affair with his lover, Philippe.
They are safe for the moment, thanks to Jean’s plan to pass her off as a Christian employee of his laundromat. However, a bad decision made by Jean’s troublesome brother, Jacques, causes Jean to be wrongly accused of being the lover of a German officer. Jean is then forced into a Nazi labor camp.
A Love To Hide is one of those rare films that depict homosexual deportation during World War II.
We will be screening the film Tuesday, September 20th, at 7:30 PM at the Synagogue. Admission is free for all.
