This is a 2002 72-minute documentary about hidden children and their rescuers under the Nazi resume during the World War II.
Before the war, more than 1.5 million Jewish children were living in Europe. By the end of the Holocaust, less than one in ten had survived.
The film tells the gripping and heart-wrenching stories of a small number of those who were saved by non-Jews in extraordinary acts of bravery and
kindness at the rist of their own lives.
Aliva Slein, the director of this film and herself a former hidden child, has created this amazing, fascinating and thought-provoking documentary.

An excellent film about the complexities of hiding Jewish children during WWII for the children themselves, their parents, and their host families, both before and after the war.

Well, it's a lot harder to watch a dvd about the Holocaust than to read about it. Interviews with children who were given for safekeeping by their families to gentile friends/acquaintances. (What a decision!) This dvd shows a side to that awful time not often emphasized. Worth watching.
