Quotes from the film:


          “Some of the kids knocked my head against the wall. And the teachers examined my scalp for lice. They say I’m clean and well-groomed for a Jewish child. They’re calling me “sale juive” which means dirty Jew in French.”

        ~ Malvina, 11 years old in 1939

“I haven’t felt the antisemitism until recently. Now Germany is showing more and more hatred towards Jews. My friends and I think it’s just a matter of time that this widespread hatred will come to us here in Belgium, too.”

~ Irving, 17 years old in 1939
