Berlin, February 1943: The NS regime declares the Reich's capital "free of Jews." At this point in time, 7000 Jews have succeeded in going underground. Almost 1700 will survive the horrors of the war in Berlin.
The Resistance tells the stories of four of these contemporary witnesses: Hanni Lévy, Cioma Schönhaus, Eugen Friede and Ruth Arndt.
The dramatic re-enactments are supplemented with impressive interviews with the actual people whose lives inspired this fi lm. The two levels blend together into an intensive, emotionally moving feature film.
