Sisters in Resistance

Four Frenchwomen interned by the Nazis at Ravensbruck concentration camp reunite for this 2000 documentary by Maia Wechsler, a fascinating oral history of France during the war years. All four women were in their teens or 20s when they joined the resistance and were deeply enmeshed in the underground when the Nazis caught up with them. A skilled storyteller, Wechsler weaves together their reminiscences to create something more powerful than the sum of its parts, and editor Anne Checler gracefully juxtaposes the women's more horrifying stories with moments of sweet nostalgia. 60 min.
