The Goethe-Institut Cyprus, within the framework of “Weeks of the German Language”, presents the screening of the documentary film ‘The Invisibles-we want to live’, on Thursday, 22nd of November 2018, at Technopolis 20, starting at 18:30.
The in-part documentary feature film deals with the concealment of Jewish refugees against the backdrop of the persecution of Jews in Berlin during the Second World War. The scenes, based on true events and the experiences of the four people who were the inspiration for the film characters, alternate with detailed interviews with the surviving witnesses. Four Jewish teenagers manage to become invisible during a time when the arrest of Jews in the capital Berlin is reaching its height.
