(5 out of 5 stars)

"Until now, the private life of the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, has been shrouded in mystery. Based on first person testimony from the oral history project, My Encounters with the Rebbe, The Early Years Volume Two sheds unprecedented light on the period following the Rebbe's marriage in 1928.

Meet the people who knew the Rebbe and the Rebbetzin then, and watch first-person testimony recounting their life at that time. Follow their escape from Nazi-governed Berlin and the quiet lives they lived in Paris. Learn how the Rebbe held down lectures at one of Paris's most prestigious schools, while setting-out on special assignments for his father-in-law, the Previous Rebbe, and writing complex Torah journals which offer early indications of his Torah genius.

The filmmakers have discovered many new documents in European archives, shedding unprecedented light on this period in the Rebbe's life. They were also granted remarkable access to the archives at Lubavitch World Headquarters, enabling them to present documents which have never been seen, until now.

Subtitled in: English, Hebrew, French and Russian.
Approximte Running Time: 70 minutes.
Plus 25 minutes of bonus footage."
