Secret Lives: Hidden Children and Their Rescuers During World War II
Hosted By: Sousa Mendes Foundation
During the Second World War, some tens of thousands of Jewish children were saved from almost certain death by non-Jewish neighbors, friends, or even — in many cases — total strangers. These rescuers, men and women of uncommon decency, did everything from bringing Jewish children into their families under false identities to securing hiding places in closets, attics, or hastily-dug bunkers. What happened between these children, their parents, and their rescuers is the focus of Aviva Slesin‘s groundbreaking film, Secret Lives.
