Everyone knows of the plight suffered by European Jews in World War II at the hands of the German Nazi soldiers and of the steps many took to escape and hide. However, only just surfaced is the extraordinary story of how a group of Western Ukrainian Jews descended into the welcoming darkness of some large caverns in their attempt to evade capture. Thirty-eight men, women and children took to the dank holes with a limited amount of sustenance for over a year and a half as was discovered by caving enthusiast Chris Nicola who unearthed several objects that intrigued him into uncovering the story. Many of the runaways escaped and today's survivors are interviewed about their experiences before once more venturing into the caves that saved their lives. But rather than feeling distressed at being back at a place they lived during a time of so many horrors, they are moved by their return as if greeting an old friend once again.
'No Place On Earth' is the moving World War II documentary directed by Janet Tobias ('Frontline: Juvenile Justice'). As miserable as the usual stories we hear about the suffering of Jews are, this new story offers a tale of hope and survival. It is due to reach the US on April 5th 2013.
Starring: Chris Nicola, Saul Stermer, Sam Stermer, Sonia Dodyk, Katalin Laban
