Documentary Film: Into the Arms of Strangers

Narrated by Oscar winner Judi Dench, this film is written and directed by Mark Jonathan Harris, writer and director of the Academy Award-winning feature documentary The Long Way Home and produced by Deborah Oppenheimer. 

Of the 10,000 children who were saved by the kindertransport, one of them one of them was the mother of producer Oppenheimer, whose experience in making the film was a journey of discovery for herself as well as for many of the people she met along the way.
