A blind hero – The Love of Otto Weidt is a German feature film that combines original contemporary footage from the Second World War with play scenes and speeches and comments by Inge Deutschkron. The film by director Kai Christiansen was produced in 2013 in co-production between NDR, WDR, RBB, HR. It is based on the true history of the brush manufacturer Otto Weidt, who during the period of National Socialism managed to protect the small Jewish workforce of his Berlin company from deportation and holocaust for a long time. For some, Weidt was able to save his life, including Inge Deutschkron and Alice Licht, around which the film mainly revolves. In 1971, Otto Weidt was posthumously honored for his actions with the title Gerechter among the peoples. ==References====External links==
