As If It Were Yesterday

Belgium 1980 | 85 minutes | French, Dutch | Hebrew, English subtitles

How were over 4000 Jewish children able to escape deportation and extermination during the Nazi occupation of Belgium? The film retraces the spirit of solidarity of the Belgian Resistance who hid or helped Jewish children, often at the risk of their own lives. In this deeply moving work, former hidden children express their deep gratitude toward those who saved their lives.
