Un Secret, directed by Claude Miller, is based on a true story. In 1953, a sensitive French boy finds out from a neighbour that his family Is Jewish. François Grimbert becomes a physician, and gradually peels the layers of his buried family history which resulted in his difficult upbringing, raised as Catholic by his Aryan-appearing parents. His athletic father laboured to stamp out stereotypical Jewish characteristics he perceived in his son, to keep the family's many secrets, as most relatives fought in World War II, and later were hauled off to labour and death camps by the Gestapo. 

Menachem & Fred, directed by Rona Tevet and Ronit Kertsner, documents the story of two brothers who for decades feared to meet. Only when rare letters were found, from their parents in a concentration camp, did Menachem and Fred start to re-establish contact and come to terms with their past. The film accompanies them on an emotionally charged journey through which a strange, unexpected relationship develops with the Hopp family, sons of the Nazis who deported their family from their home in Germany.  

The soundtrack CD of the scores for both films is now available on Quartet Records www.quartetrecords.com/un-secret.html and is also available to download from all major e-stores.
