Five Greek-Jewish children, who were saved by Christian families during the German Occupation, tell their stories. Their personal accounts of survival add an indelible humanity to history and cover a wide range of issues, from social isolation to survivor guilt. The film 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. (115 mins. Greek w/English subtitles. )
