The feature length drama will depict the extraordinary true story of 300 child survivors of the Holocaust, who were relocated from the liberated camp of Theresienstadt to Britain.

In August 1945, a coachload of children arrived at a defunct war factory in Lake Windermere, where they were housed in the empty workers’ accommodation.
