Excellent, thought provoking glimpse into just one aspect of the effects of the Holocaust
26 August 2004 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

Excellent, heart-warming documentary studying the effects of the holocaust on the youngest victims, those who sheltered them from the concentration camps, and the parents who survived to eventually retrieve them.

This movie is very well written, produced and edited. We found it to be very emotional, very moving, and very thought provoking.

The stories of what happened to these children and their parents are amazing. The discussions with the survivors and the scenes of their reunions are amazing.

We loved this movie very much and highly recommend it.
