This is the true story of Herman Stern, a businessman from North Dakota, who rescued 125 people from persecution and possible death in the 1930s and 1940s in Nazi, Germany. The film tells the story of Mr. Stern and the story of the people he saved.
Currently, there is very little written about Herman Stern’s rescue efforts. This film focuses on Herman Stern’s leadership skills and desire to help all society along with his civic and economic contributions to North Dakota. A panel discussion will follow the premiere featuring the filmmakers, a historian, and an educator.
Video Arts Studios is producing this documentary along with lesson plans that will be distributed to all North Dakota schools, libraries, museums and service organizations.
