They were young, looking forward to the future with great expectations; they felt at home in Breslau, the city with the third biggest Jewish community in Germany at that time. Then, Hitler came to power. From this time forward, these young people were connected by the common fate of being persecuted as Jews. Some of them took flight, others went into exile, and remarkably some survived the Auschwitz concentration camps. Deprived of their homes, they escaped to all sides for rescue and built new lives in their different host countries. More than a few made significant contributions to the founding and building of the State of Israel.
Words of greeting by Head of Communications and Culture Department at the German Embassy Washington, Holger Mahnicke. After this special U.S. Premiere presentation, join us for a Q&A with directors Karin Kaper and Dirk Szuszies, and survivor Guenter Lewy.
