Kisses to the Children (Σχετ: Σχετ)

Kisses to the Children

Five Greek-Jewish children who were saved by Christian families during the German occupation of Greece finally tell their stories. This documentary features Rosina, Iossif, Eftyhia, Shelly and Marios who reveal the true stories of their lives as children in hiding and the effects this has had into their adulthood.

This film also beautifully describes and recreates the lives of Greek Jewish communities before World War Two via rare archival material as well as amateur films by German soldiers and once-illegal footage shot by Greek patriots.

Kisses to the Children tells stories of anguish and confusion alongside tales of salvation and safety in the homes and arms of strangers away from the horrors of the Holocaust.
