Besa: The promise

This film tells the unknown story of the Muslims of Nazi-occupied Albania, who saved the lives of thousands of Jews during World War II, through the eyes of Jewish-American photographer Norman H. Gershman, determined to record the bravery and compassion of the Albanians, and Muslim-Albanian toy-shop owner Rexhep Hoxha, determined to return three precious books to the last surviving member of the Jewish family his father sheltered 60 years ago.
