Description

2018 Spanish Film Series at RMIT University presents

EL ANGEL DE BUDAPEST

This is the story of Angel Sanz-Briz, the Spanish Ambassador in Budapest who in 1944 saved the lives of thousands of Jews from the Holocaust.

He issued them passports and visas stating that Sephardic Jews were entitled to Spanish nationality as descendants of the Jews expelled by the Catholic Monarchs. He also lodged them in houses under the protection of the Spanish Embassy. At that time, the Hungarian Government was persecuting and deporting Jews to Nazi death camps.

There's also a romantic storyline following the lovelife of Antal, a Jew who falls in love with the daughter of an Arrow Cross official.

Language: Spanish with English subtitles
