surviving the holocaust – the family that defied hitler: revealed

This next film in Five’s award-winning historical documentary strand explores the extraordinary and hitherto unknown case of an entire Jewish family that survived the Holocaust.

Using interviews with the two surviving daughters, photographs from the time and dramatic reconstructions, the documentary brings to life this inspirational story. The family were separated, forced to endure the Warsaw ghetto, placed into concentration camps and tormented by the Gestapo, but through an astonishing combination of guile, nerve, perseverance and luck, they managed to find each other again and were reunited after the war.
