Product description

The War is Over. For These Child Holocaust Survivors It Is A New beginning.
The powerful BBC film starring
Thomas Kretschmann, Romola Garai, Tim McInnerny & Iain Glen.

A powerful and uplifting drama based on an extraordinary, untold true story of hope in the aftermath of the Holocaust, brought to us by award winning producers Wall to Wall (The Girl, The Scandalous Lady) and written by BAFTA nominated screenwriter Simon Block (The Eichmann Show, Home Fires).

One summer’s night in 1945, 300 children are in transit from Prague to the Lake District, a remote and picturesque corner of the English countryside. They are child survivors of the Nazi Holocaust that has all but wiped out Europe’s Jews and for these particular children, their entire families too. They are some of the 1000 children the British government has granted refuge to, giving them a place where they can rehabilitate and grow strong after the devastation of the war.

They carry only the clothes they wear and a few meagre possessions, along with the physical and psychological scars of all they have suffered. They do not know what awaits them in Britain and naturally they are fearful: they don’t speak English, and having spent many years living in death camps, have missed out on a proper education. But the children are also excited, for the war is over, and there is always hope that the future will be kinder to them than the past.

This moving and ultimately redemptive story follows the children and the remarkable team who were responsible for helping these children rebuild their lives as they forge friendships that will become a lifeline to a better future.
