In 1944, one month before the end of World War II, the Gestapo in Lyon, under the command of Klaus Barbie, sent two vans to the French village of Izieu to remove Jewish children from an orphanage called La Maison d'Izieu. In a cold and senseless raid, forty-four children and five adult caretakers were thrown into vans like pieces of cordwood and sent to Auschwitz, where they were immediately gassed. An emotionally-wrenching journey through a tragic chapter of the Holocaust.
