Louisville Jewish Film Festival – Fanny’s Journey
February 9, 2020 @ 10:00 am
Based on a true story, this is an incredible tale of bravery, strength and survival of a daring young girl who stops at nothing and fears no one. In 1943, 13‑year old Fanny and her younger sisters were sent from their home in France to an Italian foster home for Jewish children. When the Nazis arrive in Italy, and they are suddenly left on their own, these 11 children do the impossible and reach the Swiss border to freedom. Belgium, France, 94 minutes
