In the months preceding World War II, the British government responded to the Nazi Jewish “Programm” by allowing thousands of Jewish children to immigrate into the country and be adopted by English families. A group of these children have been interviewed and share their experiences in this heart-rending documentary narrated beautifully by Judi Dench. Chock full of fascinating footage and powerful stories, director Mark Jonathan Harris never lets your interest flag for a moment. Afterwards you’ll have these people and their experiences on your mind for days.
