Into the arms of strangers stories of the Kindertransport / Warner Bros. Pictures presents ; a Sabine Films production ; written and directed by Mark Jonathan Harris ; produced by Deborah Oppenheimer

Publication | Library Call Number: DVD-0562
Book cover

The documentary tells the story of a group of children from Germany, Austria, and Czechoslovakia who were fortunate enough to escape the unfathomable horror of the genocide perpetrated against the Jewish people during WWII. They were saved by the Kindertransport, which took 10,000 children to the safety of England in the late 1930s. (The United States government, which could have sponsored a similar program, declined to do so.) Assuming that the broad historical context is well enough known, the film concentrates on individual stories, using archival film clips and photographs, re-enactments and interviews, with both the rescuers and the rescued.
