2 DVD Set: The Windermere Children Drama Series And The Windermere Children: In Their Own Words Documentary

August, 1945. A coachload of children arrives at the Calgarth Estate by Lake Windermere. They are child survivors of the Nazi Holocaust that has devastated Europe's Jewish population. Carrying only the clothes they wear and a few meagre possessions, they bear the emotional and physical scars of all they have suffered. Charged with looking after them is Oscar Friedmann, a German-born child psychologist. He and his team of counsellors have just 4 months to help the children reclaim their lives. By the lake, the children eat, learn English, play football and ride bikes. They yearn for news of their loved ones. Some locals taunt them, but they are embraced by others. In this environment, they begin to heal. This is the stark, moving and ultimately redemptive story of the bonds the children make with one another, and of how the friendships forged at Windermere become a lifeline to a fruitful future. In the absence of relatives, they find family in each other.
