"In a Blind Hero, award-winning journalist and author Inge Deutschkron, recounts the incredible true story of Otto Weidt, the man who saved her life and those of many others, in this moving docudrama. Weidt, a Berlin brush and broom manufacturer, using cunning and determination, manages to save not only Inge and her mother but also the rest of his employees from the Nazis. A surprisingly little known story, the film also brings to life his tragic love of Alice Licht and his desperate journey to save her and her family from the gas chamber, all while he himself was almost completely blind" --Container.
