From Auschwitz to Jerusalem
A film by Michel Mees and Yvan Sevenans
From Auschwitz to Jerusalem tells the story of Jewish children, hidden children, who were often baptized during the war in order to survive the genocide. At the end of the war, many of these children, now orphaned, were recovered by the Jewish Agency and placed in gathering camps in Belgium. A long – both symbolic and real – journey in search of their lost identity then began for them. This clandestine journey would take them to Palestine.
