Into The Arms Of Strangers: Stories Of The Kindertransport Reviews

  • Jun 09, 2016

    An unforgettable documentary that documents the incredible project to transport Jewish Children from Germany/Austria before the Nazi Party had complete control. This endeavor was called Kindertransport & saved over 100,000 children but sadly 1,500,000 perished as a result of the Holocaust. The film's presents testimonies of the children still alive today & the incredible hardships they experienced having to leave their family. Many of these children never got back to their families since many of the parents where killed in Aushwitz Concentration Camp. This is humane story that is impacting & powerful, a must see film.

    This is a heartening story in the midst of one of the most disheartening episodes in human history, since there were so many people complicit in the mass killing and so few who dared to do what those involved in the 'kindertransport rescue operation' did.

    What made this documentary was hearing the stories of those who had actually been on the train. In spite of the difficulties many of these people faced, there was gratitude for what had been done for them.

    A well laid out documentary that is aided tremendously by the heart felt stories that we hear from children who never ended up going home. Very moving.

    Ignore the synopsis or the cast, they are wrong. This is a moving documentary of the Jewish children who were lucky enough to escape Germany before world war 2 really kicked off. It's a side to the story which I was not aware of so I found it very interesting. Shocking that the Americans gave nothing but excuses why they couldn't take in Jewish children, makes you proud to be English it does.

    The subject matter and archival footage is quite interesting, as are the personal tales of the now-elderly survivors. As an educational film, this is great stuff. As a documentary, however, it gets rather tedious an repetitious. Essentially, it's two hours of alternating period black-and-white footage alternating with interviews. The bare-bones style ultimately takes away from the narrative, and the individual and varying stories of the survivors are interspersed to the point that it will become difficult to keep the separate from one another without actively taking notes. Note that the synopsis given on Flixster is completely incorrect.

    Documentario sobre as criancas judias enviadas por seus pais da Europa Central para Inglaterra durante a Segunda Guerra. Historias impressionantes. As filmagens (originais) da epoca sao surpreendentes.

    This documentary was so bittersweet...all those children who were saved by Britian (the US Congress declined to accept children here, not our fiinest moment). But all those families who were forever torn apart. Worth watching, definitely.

    A great documentary about not only the Kindertransport but also the Holocaust in general. The people who tell their stories come from all walks of life and different experiences yet share that common bond of going through the worst experiences conceivable and surviving. The USHMM and Warner Brothers have put out a great educational tool for those wanting to learn from and about these events.
