In the last bloody months of World War II, the Nazis targeted Jewish children who arrived at Buchenwald in death marches from the east. This is the story of four young boys now aging men who were imprisoned in Buchenwald. They are among the nearly 1,000 Jewish orphan boys hidden in plain sight and saved from certain death by the camp's Communist prisoner underground. In April 2010, sixty-five years after liberation, Alex Moscovic, Naftali-Duro Furst, Pavel Kohn and Israel Laszlo Lazar return to honor the memory of friends and their guardian angel, Antonin Kalina, the Czech resistance member who oversaw Block 66. Mature themes.
