Escaping the Train to Auschwitz - The Life of Robert Perels

Vergiss nicht deinen Namen - Die Lebensgeschichte von Robert Perels

One traumatic experience shaped his whole life: as a five-year-old boy, Vienna-born Robert Perels and his mother were transported by rail to Auschwitz. During a short stop, the mother spontaneously decided to throw the five-year-old off the train at the last moment. This act saved her son Robert's life. A few days later, she was murdered in the Auschwitz gas chambers. In the film, Robert Perels tells his dramatic story, and talks about how he coped with the loss of his mother, about the place he called home and about how he succeeded in holding on to hope for the future as an orphan.
