Walking with the Enemy

The film Walking with the Enemy will be generally released in the United States on 25 April 2014:

In the meantime, to qualify it for the 2014 Awards Season, it has been shown on at the Heartland and Fort Lauderdale film festivals, being awarded the 'Best Picture' title at the latter.

No information yet on when it it will be seen outside the United States.

History check

The film is inspired by the real-life story of Pinchas Tibor Rosenbaum. His name has been changed in the film, as has the fact that he did not use a Nazi uniform but that of the Arrow Cross to exercise his deception.

Perhaps the film-makers thought the political situation in Budapest at the end of 1944 and during the Siege of Budapest confusing and morally ambiguous enough for Western audiences, without including this level of complexity, especially in the light of current attempts in Hungary to rehabilitate Admiral Horthy .

There may even be some who ask what any of this had, or has, to do with Conductive Education.
