Abstract About one-third of adult European Jews survived the Nazis' Final Solution, but only seven percent of children. This program tells the stories of four people who, as children, survived the Holocaust: Yehuda Bacon, one of 28 survivors out of a group of 15,000 Czech children sent to Theresienstadt and now an artist living in Israel, who describes the incredible twists of fate that kept him alive; Sophie Reichman, hidden by a non-Jewish family, who describes how she was unable to say good-bye to her mother; Janek Webber, one of only 200 Polish children to survive, who was smuggled out of the Cracow ghetto in his father's suitcase; Shmuel Sheler, whose mother bribed a peasant woman to take the 12-year-old boy back to Budapest after his family was driven out of the city and who survived by scavenging in the streets. Had Anne Frank survived, what might her story have been?
