My Italian Secret: The Forgotten Heroes

Poster for My Italian Secret: The Forgotten Heroes Why would someone risk his own life and put his family in jeopardy to 'do the right thing' and protect the life of another person, a stranger? DON'T TALK ABOUT IT introduces four characters whose personal stories reflect the larger, untold saga of the Italians who courageously saved Jews and other refugees fleeing the Nazis in World War II. It focuses on Gino Bartali, the charismatic Italian sports idol and Tour de France cycling champion, whose role in this history was never revealed in his lifetime. The film's living characters were children in Italy under Fascism and each survived World War II thanks to Italians, like Bartali, willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to help strangers escape Nazi persecution.
