In the spring of 1939, a Jewish lawyer and his wife left their comfortable home and two children in Philadelphia and embarked on a bold and improbable plan to rescue fifty children from Nazi-controlled Vienna.


    Despite the oncoming horrors of the Holocaust, Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus bravely traveled into the heart of the Nazi empire in an effort to save innocent lives.


    Their unlikely mission would turn an ordinary American couple into extraordinary heroes. Their incredible story has never been told...until now.

“Heart-wrenching, thrilling, and above all relevant”
