Plot

This is the story of sports idol, Gino Bartali and other courageous Italians who helped rescue the Jewish community, partisans and refugees from extermination in a Nazi-occupied Italy.  Bartali worked within a secret network alongside thousands of other like-minded Italians who risked their lives to save those being persecuted from capture and death. While the entire continent was engulfed in a genocide, which took the lives of nearly 6 million Jewish people in the rest of Europe, more than 80 percent of Italy’s Jewish people survived with the help of this secret network. Bartali, like most of the rescuers, never sought recognition or reward for his efforts and few of those he helped knew his name or what role he played in their rescue.

Trama


Questa è la storia di Gino Bartali, un idolo nel mondo del ciclismo, e di altri italiani coraggiosi che hanno aiutato a salvare ebrei, partigiani e rifugiati dallo sterminio nell’Italia occupata dai nazisti.  Insieme a migliaia d’italiani, Bartali formò una rete segreta il cui scopo era il salvataggio di coloro che rischiavano incarcerazione, oppressione e morte.  Mentre l’Europa subiva un genocidio che prese la vita di circa sei milioni di ebrei, più dell’80 percento degli ebrei in Italia sopravvissero grazie all’ingegno di questa rete segreta.  Bartali, come molti altri eroi dell’olocausto, non cercò mai di essere premiato o riconsciuto per il suo eroismo, e pochi di quelli che furono salvati potettero conoscere chi fosse.

Résumé


C’est l’histoire de l’étoile du cyclisme Gino Bartali et d’autres Italiens courageux qui ont sauvé de nombreux Juifs, partisans et réfugiés, à l’époque de l’occupation allemande. Avec des milliers d’autres Italiens, Bartali a fait partie d’un réseau secret dont le but était de sauver ceux qui risquaient d’être emprisonnés, opprimés ou tués. Alors qu’en Europe le génocide des Juifs a causé la mort de près de six millions de personnes, plus de 80% des juifs en Italie a survécu grâce à la mobilisation de ce réseau. Bartali, comme beaucoup d’autres héros de l’Holocauste, n’a jamais cherché à avoir une reconnaissance pour son héroïsme et peu parmi ceux qui ont été sauvés ont su ce qu’il a fait pour eux.
