My 100 Children

In the Spring of 1945, Holocaust survivor and psychologist Lena Kuchler single handedly created a home for orphaned Jewish children in Krakow, Poland, following World War II. In 1949, a wave of violent anti-Semitism forced Lena to flee with the children to France and later to Israel where Lena says goodbye to the children as they are accepted into the Schiller Kibbutz as equal members. In the film, ten children from Lena Kuchler’s children’s home return to Poland and reminisce and reflect on their past.
