During the Nazi occupation of the Ukraine, five Jewish families lived in a lengthy cave system for more than a year to avoid certain death. Men from the families left the cave at night to forage for food; one sat at the cave entrance, ready to stab to death any unwanted interlopers. The Jews fashioned everything they needed, Robinson Crusoe-style. It is an extraordinary episode in Jewish history, one that enabled all of the Jews in the cave to survive.
Quote: “Theirs is the astonishing survival story told in ‘No Place On Earth,’ a documentary released this month, directed by longtime TV producer Janet Tobias. The film intercuts interviews with reenactments to make dual points. However benevolent the cave seemed to the kids inside, safety was a minute-by-minute luxury, offset by the constant possibility that the families would be discovered.”
