  • Summary: Saviors in the Night is based on the memories of Marga Spiegel. In her narrative, published in 1965, she describes how courageous farmers in southern Münsterland hid her, her husband Siegfried {named Menne} and their little daughter Karin from 1943 until 1945, thus saving them from deportation to the extermination camps in the East. The film tells this story of survival with a sense for the absurd in daily life and not without the typical Westphalian humor. Saviors in the Night wants to create a memorial in honor of these silent heroes. (Menemsha Films) Expand

    It's all fairly by the numbers, but in Boeken's presentation, the film isn't without its moments of narrative power.
