SHEPHERD: The Story of a Jewish Dog

The unbreakable bond between a boy and his faithful dog is put to the ultimate test in Nazi Germany, in this heartbreaking and heartwarming family drama. When the Nuremberg Laws are adopted in the 1930s, Kaleb, a German Shepherd, is separated from his Jewish family. Adopted by an SS officer at a concentration camp, the dog is retrained to help round up and terrorize Jewish prisoners. But when Kaleb's former master, young Joshua, arrives at the camp, the dog rediscovers his unwavering loyalty. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Lynn Roth and based on the bestselling Israeli novel by Asher Kravitz, this sensitively told story of love, loyalty and courage offers a gentler way to learn about the Holocaust.
