HBO Documentary Film: 50 CHILDREN: THE RESCUE MISSION OF MR. & MRS. KRAUS

Overview: 50 CHILDREN: THE RESCUE MISSION OF MR. AND MRS. KRAUS tells the dramatic, previously untold story of Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus, a Jewish couple from Philadelphia who followed their conscience, traveling to Nazi-controlled Vienna in spring 1939 to save a group of children. Amidst the impending horrors of the Holocaust, they put themselves in harmís way to bring what would become the single largest-known group of children allowed into the U.S. during that time.

What got this story to be told by filmmaker Steven Pressman was his relationship with the Krausís granddaughter Liz Perle. She is his wife and he uses her on camera to help tell the tale of this daring rescue. The Krausís adventure is chronicled by Eleanorís own hand via a journal she wrote.
