Plot synopsis
It’s 1940 and Europe is engulfed in war. Russian émigrés, Nobel laureate writer Ivan Bunin and his wife Vera Muromtseva-Bunina rent out a villa on the outskirts of Grasse. Here, throughout World War II, they will hide their Jewish friends – the writer Bachrach, and pianist Aleksandr Lieberman with his wife Stephania. “Righteous man of world”, an honorable role, both Bunins are not officially ascribed. Viewers will find out about the life and emigration of A. Lieberman, and see footage of the unveiling of a memorial plaque in the pianist’s hometown Briansk (2015). This film was created with the support of the Russian Jewish Congress (RJC) and the Holocaust Center.
