In the leafy, quiet suburbs of Chicago over 1,000 European Jewish refugees and survivors of the Holocaust have passed under one roof. From this tranquil retreat six residents recount what led them there. As the last generation to suffer life under the Nazis enter their final years, this poignant film captures their incredible stories of survival and perseverance through the 20th century's darkest episode. Fascinating first person recollections of the Jewish experience, interwoven with powerful archival footage, make this documentary a compelling historical document.
