No Fading Star


In a monastery in Germany in 1943, there is an underground hiding and transporting Jewish children. David, a Jewish child, wishes to return to the ghetto from which he has been saved so that he can complete his bar mitzvah and proclaim his Jewish identity. Instead Mother Franziska helps David complete his bar mitzvah in the convent just as the local Nazi commandant intrudes to arrest the nun. David, however, is able to escape.
