Did the girls ever see their mother again? Or do they know what happened to her? I love this story.
Yes, their mother and other siblings returned from work camps in Germany and elsewhere after the war. Unfortunately, because they rescued Jews, not everyone in their family was very welcoming to the sisters after the war. Stefi and Helena were different.
I teach this film as a component to The Diary of Anne Frank. The story is raw, inspiring, and amazing. Ed: thank you — in perpetuity— for continuing to share this story.
