Director: Thomas Ammann, Judith Lentze

Producer: Prounen

2 x 52' (ENG, GER)

This film is the story of a band of six geniuses whose names carry meaning to this day: The research and scientific achievements of John von Neumann, Edward Teller, Eugene Paul Wigner, and Leo Szillard were vital in the invention of the atomic bomb and modern warfare as we know it. Robert Capa became the world’s most famous war photographer. And Michael Curtiz’s film “Casablanca” is considered to be one of the most iconic propaganda films of all time.

Individually and collectively, each of these Hungarian Jews declared war on totalitarianism. Each in their own way, but all with the same goal, the same mission, and the same enemy. None of them wanted to give Europe up without a fight. NO SURRENDER.
