Kai Christensen

Runtime89 minutes

Poster

The heroic story of unsung hero Otto Weidt, who saved dozens of Jews from the Nazi death camps. Owner of a Berlin brush and broom factory, Otto Weidt used his skills to outwit the Nazis and protect his staff, most of whom were Jewish and blind. When his secretary was deported to Auschwitz, Weidt, nearly blind himself, embarked on a journey to free her. A gripping true story of a courageous man, A Blind Hero relies almost exclusively on eyewitness accounts and the memories of those whom Weidt saved.
