In 1939, there were 1.5 million Jewish children alive in Europe.
Only about 10 percent survived the Holocaust.
Some escaped to safe shores, some survived the camps, some the forests, some at the hands of abusive protectors.
Only a handful were saved by non-Jewish rescuers, who, at great risk to their own lives, took them in as an extraordinary act of kindness.
THIS IS THE STORY OF THOSE CHILDREN AND THEIR RESCUERS.

Plot Summary:
During the Second World War, some tens of thousands of Jewish children were saved from almost certain death by an equally small number of non-Jewish neighbors, friends, or even - in many cases - total strangers. These rescuers, men and women of uncommon decency, did everything from bringing Jewish children into their families under false identities to securing hiding places in closets, attics, or hastily-dug bunkers.

What happened between these children, their parents, and rescuers is the focus of SECRET LIVES.
