Hidden Children Movie Review

Oral histories about the Holocaust are offered by John Walker's Hidden Children, a 1994 Canadian documentary. Walker's visits with six Jewish survivors of World War II supply a painful reminder of what it is like for small children to be torn away from their families and adjust to new names and completely different lives. The participants (from Belgium, Hungary, and Poland) all had to change their identities in order to live; one woman posed as a Catholic, and one man is still a Catholic priest.

1994 52m/C CA D: John Walker.
