Did any Arabs save Jews during the Holocaust?

Seeking a hopeful response to the problems of Holocaust ignorance and denial in the Arab world, and in the wake of 9/11, Middle East expert Robert Satloff set out on what would become an eight-year journey to find an Arab hero whose story would change the way Arabs view Jews, themselves, and their own history. Along the way, Rob Satloff found not only the Arab heroes for whom he started his quest but a vast, lost history of what actually happened to the half-million Jews of the Arab lands of North Africa under Nazi, Vichy, and Fascist rule.

Produced by MacNeil/Lehrer Productions and filmed on location in Tunisia, Morocco, France, Israel, and the United States, the surprising discoveries chronicled in this film are already challenging how both Arabs and Jews view a long-forgotten chapter of the darkest moment in modern times.
