Ten World War II Heroes



In this series, you will meet:
  • A teenager and her young sister who had 13 Jews in their attic for 2.5 years.
  • An Olympian who survived 47 days on a raft without food or water and a Japanese prison camp, and came to Christ afterward.
  • Three Geman teenagers who spread illegal pamphlets with the truth about Nazi Germany.
  • A group that saved 700 children – in a concentration camp.
  • A Catholic who attempted to assassinate Hitler – and nearly succeeded.
