Saviors in the Night tells the remarkable true story of Marga Spiegel and her family, Jews living in Germany during the advent of World War II. Despite being patriotic Germans and Nazi sympathizers, the Aschoff family, fellow farmers of Westphalia, hid Marga and her daughter Karin, risking everything to rescue their neighbors from deportation and certain death. The film is based on the best-selling memoirs of Marga Spiegel, who is currently 98 years old and still lives in Germany.

Human Failure is a powerful, award-winning documentary from acclaimed filmmaker Michael Verhoeven (director of "The White Rose" and "The Nasty Girl"). The expropriation of assets from German Jews during the Third Reich benefited virtually every German citizen, and many of the documents proving this expropriation were lost or destroyed; the ones that remained were hidden away. Using first-hand accounts, Human Failure goes on a search to unearth evidence documenting once of the greatest robberies in human history.
