Description
Besa, an honor code, moved Albanians to offer safe harbor to Jewish refugees during the Holocaust. American photographer Norman Gershman documents first-person accounts of Albanian Muslims who rescued Jews. These stories are brought to light for the first time and reveal a little known chapter in Jewish-Muslim relations. The film presents a powerful human drama that bridges generations and religions.
