|All the articles concerning his biography are drafted in very poor English. It's a real shame. About the film, I think that it portrays quite truly the fear, cowardice of some, and the bravery and patriotism of others. Besides it lets people, who are unaware of what it was like to live in those days, to learn about history and true events. As an Argentine Jew, I feel fully committed to my roots and and as most jews, we also had in our family our losses.
