When the war broke out, their childhood was shattered as they were sent to the Theresienstadt Ghetto, followed by the deportation to the Auschwitz camp towards the end of 1943. The Survivors reminisce on their wartime lives, including, in particular, their Jewish guardian – Fredy Hirsch, who tried to protect them against the brutality and ruthlessness of the death camp through art and sports.
