    Tells the story of three people imprisoned as children in Terezin, a WWII Nazi concentration camp for Central European Jews, many of whom were eventually shipped to Auschwitz and other extermination centers. Zuzana Justman, the filmmaker, herself spent two years in Terezin, so her profile of the survivors and their experiences conveys an unusually personal quality. Interviews with the Terezin survivors are blended with excerpts from their diaries and drawings from the wartime years.
