5.0 out of 5 stars Moral heroism takes real courage, too! April 28, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Don't let a negative review discourage you from seeing this powerful made-for-TV drama. True, you won't see action-packed scenes of Ghetto uprisings or death-camp liberations. The courage demonstrated in this film is of the quieter, clandestine kind, but it is no less heroic! "Mamushka" is the story of Mickey, a little Jewish boy. His Polish (Ukrainian?) nanny, Gertruda, refuses to abandon her adoptive family when the Germans invade Poland. Educated and fluent in six languages, she accompanies the refugees to Russian-occupied Lithuania, and helps them survive. When the Holocaust overtakes Vilnius, Gertruda promises the dying mother she will raise Mickey as her own son. "You must call me 'Mamushka' from now on," she cautions the child, "and you must never let anyone see you naked. Jewish boys are different from other little boys." Mamushka makes a living translating German documents, and takes Mickey to daily Mass. But they endure the terror of SS troops storming their neighborhood. "What do you know about Jews?" a Nazi barks at Mickey while searching the apartment. Gertruda holds her breath. Wide-eyed with fear, the little boy whispers, "they're different..." Gertruda would risk her life many times during the next years, not only to save Mickey, but to smuggle food into the Ghetto. "Woman on a Bicycle" is the story of Rebecca, a young Frenchwoman. When her brother joins the Resistance, Rebecca becomes a messenger and smuggler. She is enlisted by her bishop to falsify documents for Jewish orphan children. Rebecca tries to conceal her dangerous work from her mother, until she rescues a Jewish couple who were injured making a desperate leap from a moving boxcar. Unquestioningly, her mother offers their home as a refuge. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars The subtitle tells it like it is December 10, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
I was fortunate enought to purchase this video used. It is an inspiring story of how normal people can display courage in bad situations as opposed to the macho man with a gun type of heroism that Hollywood normally puts out. It reminds us that life can put us to the test and if we have loving hearts we to can be heros to someone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rescuers: Stories of Courage - Two Women [VHS] November 8, 2013
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Would love this video to be available on DVD. If stories about the Holocaust interest you, you will be deeply moved by these two 'Stories of Two Women' who earned their title of 'Righteous Gentiles' due to their bravery and dedication in saving Jews. One story is set in Poland and the other in France though the Polish story is my all time favourite. There are actually three videos in this 'RESCUERS: STORIES OF COURAGE' series very capably produced by Barbara Striesand: The Story of Two Women, The Story of Two Families, The Story of Two Couples. All involving righteous gentiles who, at great risk to themselves, saved many Jewish people from destruction. This video is definitely the best in the series

5.0 out of 5 stars true stories of two courageous women June 5, 2013
By Abbijoy
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
This is definitely a story that should be in DVD format! If my VCR ever quits, this will be the movie I cannot replace and will miss the most. This contains two separate stories, one set in Poland, and one in France. The second story contains some strong language and the first contains a brief innuendo, so I would suggest previewing it before viewing with children. I am continually amazed by the courage that people showed, risking their own lives to protect Jewish people who would suffer at the hands of the Nazis. I have wacthed numerous Holocaust films; this is one of my all-time favorites.
