They were kids. They were pretty. They were hidden "on the outside," satellites spinning in their own private orbit until they found each other and tell their stories for the first time. Moving, uplifting, powerful.|
Silent Witnesses is not the story of victims. It is an uplifting story of survival. Based on interviews and conversations with child survivors, these stories are unique in the realm of Holocaust narratives. Their memories were shaped through a child's lens, yet infused with the wisdom of the adults they've become.
Directed by multiple award winner, Anita Khanzadian.
