Resistance is based on the true story of how Marcel Mangel (later becoming Marceau) was recruited into the French Resistance and saved the lives of thousands of children orphaned at the hands of the Nazis. The film also stars Ed Harris, Edgar Ramirez, and Bella Ramsey.
The program will be moderated by Richard Trank, Academy Award®-winning Writer/Director of Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Moriah Films. MOT Director Liebe Geft will introduce.
