Walking with the Enemy
The film Walking with the Enemy will be generally released in the United States on 25 April 2014:
In the meantime, to qualify it for the 2014 Awards Season, it has been shown on at the Heartland and Fort Lauderdale film festivals, being awarded the 'Best Picture' title at the latter.
No information yet on when it it will be seen outside the United States.
The film is inspired by the real-life story of Pinchas Tibor Rosenbaum. His name has been changed in the film, as has the fact that he did not use a Nazi uniform but that of the Arrow Cross to exercise his deception.
Perhaps the film-makers thought the actual situation in Budapest at the end of 1944 and the Siege of Budapest confusing and morally ambiguous enough for Western audiences, without adding that further level of complexity, especially in the light of current attempts at his rehabilitation in Hungary.
Some (many?) will find the portrayal of Admiral Horthy as a sympathetic character awkward and morally ambiguous.
There may even be some who ask what any of this had, or had, to do with Conductive Education.
