Movie Info

THE RESCUERS, the latest film from Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Michael King, uncovers the largely unknown stories of 13 heroic and courageous diplomats who, at tremendous personal cost, saved tens of thousands of Jews during World War II. The film follows Stephanie Nyombayire, a young Rwandan anti-genocide activist who lost 100 members of her family in the Rwandan Genocide of the 1990s, and Sir Martin Gilbert, the renowned 20th century and Holocaust historian, as they travel across 15 countries and three continents interviewing survivors and descendants of the diplomats. Nyombayire and Gilbert explore and contemplate the past in a quest, in part, to understand what should be done to stop the ongoing genocide in Darfur and elsewhere. (c) Official Site

Critic Reviews for The Rescuers: Heroes Of The Holocaust

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

Though released in a theater, this documentary looks better suited to television.

May 8, 2014 | Full Review…

This very serious film sometimes feels like a farce.

May 6, 2014 | Full Review…

Incredible stories of bravery are revealed here, but a taste-challenged approach and a poor, ubiquitous music score dull the impact of the oft-told message.
