CAL_0218 Anna and the Egyptian Doctor February 15

This inspiring tale of courage and humanity recounts the extraordinary actions of an Egyptian doctor who rescued a Jewish girl during the Holocaust, defying boundaries of religion and politics. In a Berlin hospital, Dr. Mohamed Helmy faced discrimination and witnessed the Nazi expulsion of Jewish doctors. As a committed humanist, he risked his life to protect Jews, including young Romanian-born Anna Boros. Posthumously recognized as Righteous Among the Nations, his Egyptian family initially refused the honor for political reasons. Israeli filmmaker Taliya Finkel sets out to bridge this divide through Helmy’s great-nephew, a Cairo physician. This touching docu-activism work blends archival and present-day footage with vibrant animation in a heartening story of bravery and moral fortitude.
