In 1938 and 1939, about 10,000 children, most of them Jews, were sent by their parents from Germany, Austria, and Czechoslovakia to the safety of England where foster families took most of them in for the duration of the war. Years later, eleven kinder, one child's mother, an English foster mother, a survivor of Auschwitz who didn't go to England, and two of the kindertransport organizers remember: the days before the Nazis, the mid-to-late 1930s as Jews were ostracized, saying farewell to family, traveling to England, meeting their foster families, writing home, fearing the worst, coping, and trying to find families after the war ended. 1,500,000 children dead; 10,000 saved.

At a time when the progress of human civilization seemed to have come to an end, when the Dark Side was overwhelming the light, kindness and generosity could still be found. This extraordinary film is history as it should be: from the innermost thoughts and memories of the participants. This is a film that challenges every viewer - not because it preaches, but because it shows us at our worst and at our best. This is a film that you will never forget.
