Movie Info

During WW II, between 1938 and 1939, Allied forces launched a courageous rescue mission to save 10,000 children from certain death in the concentration camps. These children were of Jewish or Gypsy descent or were otherwise marked as undesirable. This documentary looks at what happened to these salvaged children. To tell their often sad stories and chronicle the psychological effects of the traumatic events (although it was planned that the children would eventually be returned to their parents, over 90% never saw their parents again) the film uses interviews with survivors and rescuers, archival footage, and old photographs. Though filmmaker Melissa Hacker keeps the focus on others, her own mother was one of the children saved from the camps.
