Directed by Cate Shortland, Lore traces the 900 km trek of five destitute siblings from southwestern Germany to their grandmother’s home near Hamburg after WW II, having been abandoned by their high-ranking Nazi parents who fled the Allied Forces. Other Germans on their journey, including a young man pretending to be a young Jewish concentration camp survivor, acquaint the children with their parents’ beliefs and the circumstantial nature of truth.

In postwar Germany, a girl whose parents have been imprisoned for their Nazi past must get her siblings to safety, with help from a Jewish runaway, in “Lore,” showing in the “Passport Germany” program at the 2013 Milwaukee Film Festival.
