jacobs courage

Jacob’s Courage chronicles the dazzling beauty of passionate love and enduring bravery in a lurid world where the innocent are brutally murdered.  This is a tender coming of age love story of two young Jews when the Nazi war machine enters Austria.  Follow lovers Jacob and Rachael from their comfortable Salzburg homes to a decrepit ghetto, from there to a prison camp where they secretly become man and wife.  Revel in their excitement as they escape through a tunnel, join the local partisans and fight the Nazis.  Finally ride the fetid terrifying train to Auschwitz.  Stung by the death of loved-ones, enslaved and starved, the young lovers have nothing to count on but faith, love and courage.  From desperation and despair, to unforgettable moments of chaste beauty, Jacob’s Courage examines a constellation of emotions during a time of brutality and genocide.
