Remembering the Holocaust

The Windermere Children

The Windermere Children

This new feature-length dramatization is the remarkable true story about hope in the aftermath of the Holocaust. The 90-minute film is based on the powerful first-person testimony of orphaned survivors who rebuilt their lives in the United Kingdom following World War II.

From screenwriter Simon Block and director Michael Samuels, THE WINDERMERE CHILDREN is led by an incredible cast including Thomas Kretschmann, Romola Garai, Tim McInnerny and Iain Glen.

The story follows a group of child Holocaust survivors who are transported to the Calgarth Estate by Lake Windermere, England, in August 1945. Carrying only the clothes they wear and a few meager possessions, they bear the emotional and physical scars of all they have suffered.
