Remembering The Kindertransports

Nominated for a Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, My Knees Were Jumping is the first feature-length documentary to reveals the heart-wrenching story behind the Kindertransport. A powerful account of this astonishing slice of Holocaust history, it is told with poignant intimacy by the daughter of a survivor.

Filmmaker Melissa Hacker's mother, Ruth Morely (Academy Award nominated costume designer for The Miracle Worker), was one of the over 10,000 children saved in the Kindertrasnport movement during the Holocaust. On the eve of World War II, as millions of Jews were seeking refuge from Nazi persecution, country after country turned its back - all except for Great Britain who opened its doors to an unspecified number of Jewish children in danger. As the children boarded trains taking them to a safe haven in London, their parents were left to embark on a different journey - one taking them to the concentration camps. Most of these children never saw their parents again.

Narrated by screen legend Joanne Woodward, My Knees Were Jumping weaves personal first-hand accounts with extraordinary archival footage to reveal the incredible impact of this British refugee policy that saved over 10,000 Jewish children during World War II. From grappling with the guilt of survival to the fear of abandonment that still haunts them to this day, the survivors' unforgettable stories will leave few unchanged.
