In June 1943, as the Nazis declared the Reich “judenfrei” (“free of Jews”), thousands of Jews were living in hiding or under false identities in Berlin.

In this suspenseful and fascinating film, filmmaker Claus Räfle focuses on the stories of several young people (nicknamed “U-Boats” or “submarines”) who, through various means, attempted to evade capture.

THE INVISIBLES brings narrative and emotional intensity to these astonishingly true stories by using a hybrid of documentary and highly accomplished drama.

Co-presented by The National Center for Jewish Film’s 21st Annual Film Festival.
