Months before the outbreak of World War II, Jewish children from Germany, Austria, Poland, and beyond were sent without their parents to families and care homes in the UK, Belgium, France, the Netherlands, and Sweden to escape the Nazi terror. Featuring magnificent scenery, this powerful, elegantly made documentary records the personal accounts of four Jewish people who were placed in Sweden as children, capturing the feelings of loss and guilt they endured and the resilience with which they faced their new lives.

The New York Jewish Film Festival continues through January 26! Get tickets.
