Filmmakers Amalia Margolin and Oshra Schwartz’s documentary follows the journey of Lena Küchler-Silberman’s children – abandoned and orphaned Jewish kids found by Küchler at the offices of the Jewish Committee in Krakow, Poland, whom she then brought to Israel with her in 1949. The children, now all grown up, travel back to Poland during the making of the film where they set out to retrace their past and childhood. The film bears the title of Küchler’s bestselling book (that has been translated to multiple languages) in which she recalls meeting the orphans, and the arduous, gruelling journey to rehabilitate them that followed – from the Polish resort town of Zakopane through the Czech Republic and France and finally, Israel. The film won the Jewish Experience Award at the Jerusalem Film Festival.
