“My Italian Secret: The Forgotten Heroes” tells the story of the charismatic Italian cycling hero, Gino Bartali, and other courageous Italians who carried out ingenious schemes to rescue Jews, partisans and refugees from Nazi-occupied Italy.  As an entire continent was engulfed in a genocide which took the lives of most Jews in Nazi occupied Europe, more than 80 percent of Italy's Jews survived. Bartali, like most of the rescuers, never sought recognition or reward. Few of those he helped knew his name or what role he played in their rescue.
