Raw, hard emotion

This movie is the most heart-wrenching movie I have ever seen, and I will never forget it. I first saw the movie in a parochial grade school in the early 1960s. The nuns thought it would be good for us; and it was. This movie has stayed in the front of my mind for all of my life. The memories evoke emotions in everyday life allowing more compassion towards others in terrible plights. This movie truly shows human emotion so strong one thinks it is real. The acting is superb!! I still get shivers when I think of what one child alone in the world had to face, both physically and emotionally. I don't think I could have been that courageous. No special effects needed here - bring a hankie!!
