Well, maybe no one will read this review, seeming as the movie is not even available at amazon, but I hope someone reads it and is inspired to watch the movie. It is truly a treat.
What would you do if you were only 16 or 17 and had no parents around to take care of you during the bloody days of WWII? What if the Gestapo came to your door demanding that you leave your home in one hour and find somewhere else to live? It would be a difficult demand.
Especially if you had 13 Jews hidden in your attic.
Hidden in Silence is the true story of Stephania Pordgorska, a Catholic Polish teenager who had to decide wether to sit back and let Hitler's soldiers "liquidate" the Jews in her city or wether to do something about it.
She did something about it. And saved 13 lives which included men, women, and children. As a historian, I may be tempted to look at that and say, what is 13 against 6 million who died? But that would be missing the point. The point is, Stephania (called Fusia in the movie) did what she could. She did as much as was in her power. And yes, 13 may not seem like a large number,but to the 13 people she saved, it was everything. I love this story because it is true. Because, although Hollywood always plays with the facts a little, they really did do a comparitively excellent job with accuracy in this movie (I have reasearched the story). They didn't "Spice up" the story. It didn't need it. I love it because Stephania didn't make excuses for not doing anything. She could have thought "What can I do? I'm just a kid." But she didn't.
And that is why you must see this amazing story.

An intense recounting of a true story of how a brave teenage girl and her younger sister do "the heroic" for their Jewish friends and neighbors in a ghetto of Poland during the Nazi occupation. It is real, well done and well worth it!

From here, you might also take a look at The Only Way with Jane Seymour.

I'd been waiting a long time to see this movie again - a true story. It's just as riveting now, as when I first saw it. Highly recommend it, no matter how many WWII movies you've seen. It's "justice and compassion at it's finest".

I teach 6th grade, and one of our novels is Number The Stars by Lois Lowry. I taped "Hidden In Silence" off of Lifetime Television years ago and have shown it to my class each year after reading our novel. I have found that my students really enjoy this movie, especially when they find it is based on a true story. It may not be the most accurate historical representation of events during that time, but overall it is a touching story that my grabs my students' attention. It is a springboard for amazing discussions and writing topics of tolerance, hate, acceptance and bravery. When I went to show this film this week, to my horror my ancient VCR ate the tape! I was so excited to find the DVD here on Amazon!

as one reviewer said. It is a good history film that should be shown to many generations. Kellie Marin does a fine job of portraying the teenage girl who must raise her little sister on her own,plus take in 13 Jews which she manages to hide in her attic. The acting and writing are superb. I have one complaint though, I hated the lighting in the film...it was so dark and it made the quality look cheap, like a low budget film. Other that that, it is good and I appreciated the producers not allowing a ton of violence to be shown. It is not necessary; Hearing about the war was ugly enough. Since Schindlers' List isn't exactly appropraite for young children, this one makes a nice alternative. (They won't have nightmares for months later.)
P.S. Hey Kellie Martin fans, I heard on a Down Syndrom's website that LGO is going to be released this summer on dvd! I cannot wait to purchase it! If you have never seen it, I hope you will check it out this summer, you will not regret it. It changed my life.

Kellie Martin shines in this fine adaptation of the story of the young Catholic Polish teenager who put her life on the line to save the Jews in her country. Faced with incredible odds, she trusted God to deliver them, and He answered her prayers.

The ensemble cast is magnificent, and what was really nice about the film was the fact that it was not very explicit in the violence against the Jews. You saw a few minor scenes, but it wasn't the point of the movie, anyway. If you want really explicit scenes, there's always Schinder's List, but that was a different story.

This is a really nice teaching tool for your older children, and provides a launching pad for a dialogue on the Holocaust.

Highly recommended!!!

I was starting to think that maybe this great TV-Film will never be released on DVD format, but finally we have it here !

THE MOVIE is in fact bases on 2nd World war, and talks about a Teen catholic girl named Fucsia who lives with a Jewish Family, as you know, the germans were looking for them (jewish people) to kill them (You know all the story about the 2nd world war).

In this case, Fucsia is a very corageous girl who has decided to hide lots of Jewish people... Will they be save during the war ???? If you want to know the answer i really recommend to all of you buy this excellent movie, the acting is really well and credible and the situations happens in a perfect time between the sceens; the locations are also beautiful (Altough it portrays Poland, it was actually filmed in Chzec Republic).

What elese can i say ??? Buy it !!! you will not be dissapointed, and it is in a super price !!! Do not miss the chance !!!
