This is a 2002 documentary about the Jewish boys who survived the horrors of Buchenwald concentration camp.
After the American troops liberated the camp, they went to France to build their new life.
However, these boys hoarded food, burned mattresses and fought, leaving many adults to regard them as damaged beyond repair.
But slowly, they began to find good in people.
It is a heart-wenching story at the beginning yet a heart-warming tale at the end.

Shows the good side of what people can do when they work together, even in the face of immeasurable horror. That these boys survived was a miracle, that they became productive and loving adults is an inspiration.
