My mother's courage a Sentana Film production with Little Bird and with WEGA Filmproduktionsges.m.b.H Veit Heiduschka and in association with Bavaria Film GmbH, a film by Michael Verhoeven ; produced and directed by Michael Verhoeven.
Elsa is an outgoing woman who tackles her daily tasks cheerfully. Even when she is arrested for deportation, her unquestioning cooperation and inability to consider a montrously horrific reality demonstrate how millions of people were manipulated to their doom. Equally obedient, the German officers have their orders to follow. The true account of the deportation of over 4,000 Jews to Auschwitz in July 1944, and how one mother's simple act of quiet defiance evaded deportation to Auschwitz - and certain death.
