Description: Set in a small Czech town in 1943, Divided We Fall revolves around a childless couple, Josef and Marie Crzek, who are somewhat apathetic toward the German occupation until Josef finds his former Jewish neighbor David hiding in his old apartment, having just escaped from Theresiendstadt concentration camp. Josef realizes he must harbor David and, with Marie's help, creates a hideout for him in their attic. The Crzeks are concerned about their best friend Horst as he is a Nazi collaborator and is lasciviously interested in Marie. When she refuses his advances, he is determined to take revenge by moving a high-ranking Nazi into their home, putting David's and the Crzeks' future in danger. Marie rebuts this forced hospitality by claiming she is pregnant, although Josef has just been diagnosed as sterile. The solution to all their troubles, revealed in the wonderful third act, contains an ironic twist that is alternately comedic, poignant, and life affirming.
