The Story of Lina Amato

South African filmmaker, Johnathan Andrews, presents the true story of Lina Kantor (Amato), one of the few remaining survivors of the Holocaust now residing in Cape Town, South Africa.

This extraordinary documentary film explores the rare account of how the interventions of Selahattin Ülkümen (Turkish Consul-General on Rhodes Island, Greece), and the actions of two Italian school teachers (Bianca and Girolamo Sotgiu), saved 42 Jews from deportation by the Nazis to Auschwitz during July 1944 - World War II.
