An okay movie of the week!
3 September 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Linda Lavin gives an exceptional heartwarming performance in a typical television Holocaust film of the week. Her Lena is portrayed admirably by Ms. Lavin. The children were well-acted and performed also admirably. Since reading the book, I have gained a little knowledge more as to the conditions to postwar Poland. The film itself should be seen and book should be read to gain further understanding about the Holocaust. There is nothing really special about this film except Lavin can do more than play television's Alice. I hope this book and movie can inspire teachers to help students understand the subject a lot better than some other movies or books.
