Remember Us: The Hungarian Hidden Children
Synopsis: Hidden Children. That’s the title given to countless children who survived The Holocaust by being placed out of harm’s ways. By finding sanctuary in the arms of strangers, through the assistance of friends and acquaintances or even soldiers, “the enemy,” who ended up looking the other direction for one way or another. These tales aren’t always easy. There’s hardship and close calls. There’s struggle and fear. There are tales of family members literally being ripped away to be transported to destinations unknown. Tales of friends and neighbors being gunned down in the streets. However, for every tale of pain and woe, there is a moment of joy sometimes scurried away in the mind of a long since grown child. These moments are what we aim to capture. These moments are what we aim to share.
