In January 1943, the Nazis pronounced Berlin “Judenfrei,” free of Jews. Little did they know that close to 7,000 Jews were still in the German capital, most in hiding, but some living recklessly in plain sight. By war’s end, less than 2,000 Jews were still there. The Invisibles is about four of these survivors. Director Claus Räfle seamlessly integrates interviews of the survivor’s with dramatic recreations of their remarkable stories from this dark period to make a spellbinding documentary of resilience and resistance.
