It is rare indeed to find a television dramatisation, even one concerned, as here, with the Holocaust, that exercises such a raw emotional power.

The horror was emphasised less than the humanity: we got to know seven teenagers and watched the well-meaning but futile attempts of psychologists and teachers to help them.

The young Polish actors playing the teenagers did a harrowing subject proud.

Impressively devoid of sentimentality, grim in its facts, and moving in its portrait of the determined effort to rescue these young lives.
