Product description

Product Description

Oscar-winning documentary which explores the story of the many Jewish children whose families sent them to safety in England during the early years of the Nazi Holocaust. Features interviews with eleven of those refugees, who recall life before the Nazi persecutions began, tell what it was like to live out the war with foster parents in a foreign country, and describe the experience of returning to the continent in search of their families once the war was over. Narrated by Judi Dench.

From Amazon.co.uk

Winner of the 2001 Oscar for Best Documentary, Into The Arms Of Strangers attempts to expose and understand one of the forgotten travesties of WWII. While the evacuation of British children during the Second World War has become the stuff of legend, the rescue of 10,000 Jewish children from Germany is less well known. This programme of "kindertransport" was to provide a vital escape route to England for many children, but would also leave many heartbroken families behind to face an uncertain future at the hands of the Nazis. Told mainly in the first person by those who made the journey, this American produced documentary is a moving testament to the most innocent victims--one and a half million children perished in the Holocaust.

We may have become used to tales of Nazi's brutality in the 21st century, but it is always shocking to see the emotions that still run deep for those who experienced and survived these events first hand. As the story--narrated by Dame Judi Dench--unfolds it becomes clear that although the kindertransport was one of the great humanitarian efforts of the 20th century it was not without its flaws, none more so than the internment and repatriation of many of the evacuees that followed once war with Germany was declared. A very real historical document, Into The Arms Of Strangers is highly recommended for those looking to delve a little deeper into the travesties of War. --Phil Udell --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
