An idealistic German, with his American wife and two children, flees Hitler?s Germany and finds sanctuary with his wife?s family in the United States. He hopes for a respite from the dangerous work in which he has been involved, but his desire for personal safety soon comes into conflict with the deeply-held beliefs which have made him an active anti-Nazi. In the end, his conscience cannot be compromised and he returns to Germany and the resistance movement and to what will be, most certainly, his ultimate destruction. Told in compelling, human terms, WATCH ON THE RHINE is an eloquent and stirring tribute to the brave men and women who, despite all odds, struggled early on to stem the tide of fascism which was soon to spread throughout Europe and the world.
