Summary The little-known story of a group of Polish Jewish children, mainly orphans, who made a wartime odyssey from Europe to Palestine. When Germany invaded Poland in September 1939, more than 300,000 Jews fled eastward, among them thousands of children. After imprisonment by the Soviets, the Jewish orphans were released in 1941 and allowed to accompany Polish soldiers on a long and arduous journey to Tehran. From there they struggled on to Palestine, arriving in 1943. (From Germany, in English and Hebrew, English subtitles) (Documentary) M (A) CC
