In 1944, a Jewish couple in Paris desperately awaits news of their missing family. More than 70 years later, the couple's great- grandchildren find themselves facing the same question as their ancestors: "Are we safe?"Following five generations of a French Jewish family, Prayer For The French Republic is a sweeping look at history, home, and the effects of an ancient hatred.
