CEN1-04. UnBroken

US/Germany, Feature Documentary, 2023, 97 min

UnBroken is the true story of how the Webers, a family of 7 Jewish children, were able to stay together during one of the largest systematic genocides in human history.  After their mother was murdered in Auschwitz, they were hidden away for two years with the help of a gracious farmer and his wife, who risked instant execution by the Nazis for harboring Jews. Emboldened by their father’s mandate that they ‘always stay together,’ the children fight through hunger, loneliness, bombings, and fear as they manage to travel across Germany together and escape to America. Filmmaker Beth Lane, daughter of the youngest Weber sibling, embarks on a quest to retrace their steps, seeking answers to long-held questions about her family’s survival. The film examines the journey of the Webers, as told through conversations with living siblings – now in their 80s and 90s. Beth and her crew road-trip across Germany, following the courageous, tumultuous, and harrowing path taken by her family over 70 years ago. Subtitled.

Directed by Beth Lane
