For nine months prior to World War II, in an act of mercy unequalled anywhere else before the war, Britain conducted an extraordinary rescue mission, opening its doors to over 10,000 Jewish and other children from Germany, Austria, and Czechoslovakia. These children, or Kinder (sing. Kind), as they came to be known, were taken into foster homes and hostels in Britain, expecting eventually to be reunited with their parents. The majority of them never saw their families again.Written by
The Touching Testimony of Survivors About the Atrocities of a War
Along 1938 and 1939, the United Kingdom welcomed 10,000 Jewish children from Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia through the Kindertransport program. Most of the other countries, including the United States of America, refused to accept these children. With the beginning of the World War II, this relocation was interrupted. "Into the Arms of Strangers" is a documentary, based on the remembrances and touching testimony of some survivors discussing their reality in their new homes or foster houses, their adaptation problem far from their parents, families and birth country and language and illustrated by photos and footage from that sad period. In the end, the viewer is not sure whether these children were lucky, or whether it might be better for them stay with their families and face the Holocaust together, due to their serious childhood trauma. Inclusive some of them did not speak the original language anymore, and needed an adaptation period to meet their parents again in the end of the war. As mentioned by another user, "this film is at once a testament to man's inhumanity". Unfortunately, the saddest thing to say is that more than fifty years later, we see Bosnian, Africans, Palestines, Iraquians etc. children being separated from their families due to the intolerance of the mankind. I can never forget the image of that Iraquian orphan without both arms on TV. My vote is seven.
