Bernard Lipstadt – Marie Pinhas

Le destin de deux enfants juifs évadés


Ce film a reçu le soutien de la cellule Démocratie ou barbarie de la Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles.


Synopsis: Bernard Lipstadt et Marie Pinhas sont deux enfants juifs. Pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, ils sont arrêtés par la Gestapo à Bruxelles et envoyés vers la caserne Dossin, à Malines, où les nazis rassemblaient tous les Juifs de Belgique avant de les envoyer vers l’Est, vers les camps d’extermination. Bernard est le seul enfant qui s’échappera de la caserne Dossin. Marie, quant à elle, sera emmenée avec sa famille au camp d’Auschwitz, en Pologne. Par sa détermination, elle finira par s’échapper, elle aussi, et sera rapatriée en Belgique après la fin de la guerre où, un jour, elle rencontre Bernard… C’est le fabuleux destin de ces deux enfants que vous fait découvrir le réalisateur André Bossuroy dans son nouveau film documentaire.

International Congresses: “The fall of the Berlin Wall”

Congresses were held in 7 European cities (Milan, Toulouse, Brussels, Berlin, Louvain-la-Neuve, Salamanca, Coimbra, Moster) to assess the renewed tensions between European countries and Russia, 30 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall symbolizing the end of the Cold War.


A film was also shot with the participation of young Europeans.
Synopsis: After the Second World War, a political and ideological confrontation existed between the two superpowers which were the United States, the Soviet Union and their respective allies. A phoney war in Europe with no cannons or guns…. a cold war!
And for the young generations, this story of the Cold War tends to disappear in a lapse of memory. It is to find out more about this period that Lucas and Emilien, two students accompanied by Ariane, a violinist, travelled to Berlin, a city that saw the concentration of this war’s main tensions in Europe.
