Child of the Forest (1)Drama · 1 January 0001
Child of the Forest chronicles the extraordinary true-life story of Charlene Schiff (Shulamit Perlmutter), affectionately known as "Musia." Musia's harrowing journey takes her from a loving and academic home in pre-war Poland to an orphaned childhood. After her father's abduction at the hands of the Nazis, Musia's mother plans a daring escape from the Polish ghetto for herself and her two daughters. Heartrendingly orphaned at just 11 years-old, Musia flees the Nazis and spends three winters in hiding alone, fighting for her life in the forests of eastern Poland, only 50 miles from the Belzec death camp.
