"Hearing one person tell their story gave a completely different perspective to what happened, as it wasn't about statistics or about a nation as a whole, but one person who lost his family and home." ~O. Avery (student)

In spring 1939, a Philadelphia Jewish couple, Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus, embarked on a bold plan to rescue 50 children from Nazi-occupied Vienna. In completing the incredible mission, the Krauses and Brith Sholom were responsible for the first and largest known American transport of refugee children throughout the Holocaust. This film tells the gripping story of two ordinary people who rose to the challenge of becoming extraordinary heroes.

Post film discussion with Kurt Herman, one of the children rescued and an active Holocaust speaker.
