With next week being  the U.S. Holocaust Remembrance Week I thought it might be timely to re-release a post that I did a few months ago. It relates to the story of Eva Kuper which I found on a Canadian website:

This is a beautiful and intensely moving film. The story of Eva Kuper a tiny little Polish Jewish girl who was rescued at almost the last second from certain death from a train that was headed to Treblinka Concentration Camp. The story then tells of the wonderful nun who looked after her for three years and how she miraculously found the nun when she revisited Poland in 2005.It is a film that should be shown in schools as it tells a great human story about awful events but shows how people risked death to help these children to survive.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
