Teicholz Holocaust Remembrance Film Series





Syndrome K tells the little-known story of Italian doctors who rescued Jews during the Holocaust by fabricating a highly contagious fake disease. During the Nazi occupation of Rome, three Roman Catholic doctors hid Jews in a Vatican-affiliated hospital by convincing Nazis that the patients had the deadly “Syndrome K." The documentary features interviews with survivors and their descendants as well as 98-year-old Adriano Ossicini, the last surviving doctor, and Pietro Borromeo, the son of the hospital's head doctor.
