In June 1943, the German government famously declared Berlin “judenfrei”—free of Jews. But there were still 7,000 Jews living in hiding in the German capital. In this extraordinary film, Claus Räfle tells the true story of four of the 1,700 survivors who hid in plain sight throughout the war. THE INVISIBLES uses a hybrid of documentary and highly accomplished dramatizations that render the harrowing story even more astonishing.

NOTE: Among the survivors featured in the film is Ruth Arndt Gumpel, sister of Erich Arndt. Erich was a local survivor who devoted his time to telling his story at Rochester-area schools. His story is part of the new JCC CenterStage production, Survivors.
