Nelly & Nadine tells the unlikely love story between Nelly Mousset-Vos, an opera singer who worked with the French Resistance, and Nadine Hwang, a habituée of the French literary scene who was also likely part of the resistance. The two women were sent to Ravensbrück concentration camp, and it was there where they met and fell in love. Although they were separated in the last few months of the war, they managed to reunite and spent the rest of their lives together in Venezuela. Nelly and Nadine’s story was kept secret until Nelly’s grandchild Sylvie opened the couple’s personal archives to uncover their history. The Museum’s virtual screening of the film will be followed by a conversation with the film’s director Magnus Gertten and scholar and CEO of the Jewish Women’s Archive Judith Rosenbaum.
