Join us for our annual series of top films about the experiences of Jews during the Shoah.
The stories of Five Greek-Jewish children who were saved by Christian families during the German Occupation. Their stories of terror, anguish, and confusion are also stories of salvation and carefree childhoods with strangers. These children were forced to mature abruptly, and grew up in silence carrying the memories of the thousands of children who were never given the chance to grow. The movie follows these "hidden children" from childhood to present day, revealing their hidden stories and invaluable personal documents - a child's diary, photographs, and home movies. It also depicts the life of the Greek Jewish Communities before the War, complemented with rare images of Occupied Greece from archival material, as well as amateur films by German soldiers and illegal footage shot by Greek patriots.
