This true story tells the compelling tale of Fanny Ben-Ami. After the arrest of their father in German-occupied Paris, Fanny (Léonie Souchaud) and her younger sisters Erika (Fantine Harduin) and Georgette (Juliane Lepoureau) are sent by their mother to a children’s boarding school in rural southeast France.

The younger girls, particularly clingy Erika, stay close to their older sister, but Fanny is clearly very much still a child herself, with a penchant for climbing trees. She takes care of her two younger sisters until she is forced to flee in a rush, becoming the head of a group of eight children heading across occupied France.

In partnership with the Holocaust Commission of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater
