Summary
Based on the acclaimed HBO documentary, the astonishing true story of how one American couple, Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus, transported fifty Jewish children from Nazi-occupied Austria to America in 1939 -- the single largest group of unaccompanied refugee children allowed into the United States during a time when deep-seated anti-Semitism and isolationism gripped much of the country
