Seret: The Essential Link: The Story of Wilfrid Israel

SERET London - the Israeli Film & TV Festival

Cinema

Directed by Yonatan Nir | 2016 | Israel | Hebrew with English subtitles | 71 mins

The film tells the remarkable story of Wilfrid Israel – a wealthy Jewish businessman and owner of Berlin’s largest department store in the 1930s, who was involved in the saving of tens of thousands of Jews, and played a key role in the Kindertransport operation.

Israel was a member of one of Germany’s most prominent Jewish families and acquainted with some of the most influential figures of the 20th century, yet little is known about his personal life and heroic endeavours. Why did his story remain untold? What was there to hide?

The mysterious story becomes personal as filmmaker Yonatan Nir takes us on an adventure in search of this extraordinary man.

“Through this film, generations to come will be able to get to know our nation’s history and better understand where its firm roots derive from” - Shimon Peres
