Holocaust Museum Houston presents The Children of Chance
As part of the Houston Jewish Film Festival, Holocaust Museum Houston will screen The Children of Chance.
A broken leg is a lucky misfortune for Maurice Gutman, a young Jewish boy who is taken away by ambulance just as the Jews of Paris are being rounded up by the French police during WWII. Diagnosed with tuberculosis, Maurice is sheltered in a children's hospital ward. As the war intensifies, the chief physician and senior nurse resort to drastic measures to keep Maurice and the other Jewish patients safe.
Based on a true story, this tender coming-of-age drama is a testament to the resilience and bravery of youth.
