Avraham is just ten years old when his life changes forever. After Nazis arrive in his hometown of Vienna, Austria, his parents send him away to the Netherlands. But the invading German army soon follows. During the ensuing war-torn years, Avraham evades capture, makes daring escapes and endures torturous hiding and heartbreaking losses. Yet he also experiences the goodness of humanity through the strangers who help him.
Based on Avraham’s bestselling autobiography, this inspirational documentary is more than just a remarkable story of survival – it’s a testament to human kindness, even in the darkest of hours, and to the achievements made possible through relentless perseverance.
Q&A with special guests Keren Perlmutter, Ph.D., filmmaker and Avraham’s daughter and, from the Netherlands, Henk, Jerome and Emma Beijers, members of the incredible family who helped Avraham.
