This powerful documentary tells the story of Leon Blum - a Jew who served as prime minister of France, and who was a prisoner of the Nazis at the Buchenwald concentration camp.


Blum, the first socialist and first Jew to lead France, devoted his life to improving the well-being of workers and was an early champion of women's rights. In 1936, while the head of the Popular Front, an alliance of left-wing movements, he became prime minister. In 1940, his socialist views and Jewish heritage placed him in jeopardy, and the Vichy government deported him to Buchenwald until the end of the war. After the war, Blum was welcomed home by the French people and was re-elected prime minister in 1946.
