In December 1938, 10,000 Jewish children without their parents were put on the Kindertransport out of Nazi Germany to find safe haven in England. Based on the autobiography by Anne Lehman Fox, My Heart in a Suitcase chronicles her escape and experiences as a 12-year-old on the Kindertransport. This is a gripping, poignant and dramatic tribute to the power of love and the strength of the human spirit. 60 minutes.
