Sylvie Rosenberg escaped the holocaust—but can she escape the past?
October 20, 1942. Benjamin Katz and his daughter Sylvie stand with their frightened family at a train station in occupied Holland, unsure if the train would take them to their freedom—or to a death camp.
Hitler and his henchmen have long had their eye on the art collection of Benjamin and his brother, which includes Rembrandt’s “Portrait of Raman.” Now the brothers are faced with the ultimate choice—part with the art, or suffer the consequences.
Based on a true story, Rembrandt’s Shadow is the tale of two women from different generations who find themselves forced to confront each other years later—while still haunted by the past.
