Posted Jul 27th, 2007  Category: Arts & Entertainment

 

“Jacob’s Courage” chronicles the dazzling beauty of passionate love and enduring bravery in a lurid world where the innocent are brutally murdered. In 1939 Austria, seventeen year-old Jacob Silverman and Rachael Goldberg are bright, talented and deeply in love. Because they are Jews, their families lose everything; their jobs, homes, possessions, money, contact with loved ones and finally thier liberty, disappear at the hands of the Nazis. As teenagers, Jacob and Rachael survive Nazi beatings, rape and torture, to enjoy the physical and spiritual pleasure of being in love. They become man and wife in a concentration camp and escape to join the partisans and fight the Nazis. Jacob is later recaptured and sent to Auschwitz with his parents. Driven by the belief that God has a plan for him to become a leader and save the innocent, Jacob finds a way to tolerate the intolerable.
