This WW II documentary gets across the plight, devastation and few resurrections experienced by children and their families .

This is a 2000 117-minute documentary about the story of the kindertransport---a rescue operation which saved the lives of over 10,000
Jewish children from Nazi Germany by transporting them via train to England, where they were adopted by British families.
The film relies heavily on interviews of the transported children, who are now grown men and women in their 60s and 70s.
They recall their feelings and experiences of the kindertransport.
They are indeed lucky ones because 1.5 million other Jewish children perished in the concentration camp.
It is a gripping and heart-wrenching documentary.

This academy award winning film is well worth watching. Many interviews with survivors provide heartbreaking insight into the lives of these children and their parents as well as the motivations of people in Britain who took them in.
