Train of Life
The year is 1941, and a tiny Jewish community in France is faced with some shocking news: the Nazis are coming. But Shlomo, the not-so-foolish village idiot,has a plan; before the Germans can dispatch them to camps, the townspeople will 'deport' themselves - to freedom. In a daring race against time, they build their own train and, masquerading as Nazis and their prisoners, attempt one of the greatest escapes in history.
“This is not a heartwarming story of the holocaust, but a fantasy that thrusts the viewer back into reality and the horrors of the holocaust with one of the most heartwrenching final scenes.”
Location: Central 1A & 1B
