It's an incredibly moving film, alternately infuriating and heartbreaking -- often both.
Heartbreaking yet truly inspirational.
Rating: 3.5/5 -- Into the Arms of Strangers was produced with the help of the Holocaust Museum in Washington; it is a valuable, if necessarily fragmented, part of that institution's attempt to convey the enormity of what the Nazis did one life at a time.
New York Times
Rating: 5/5 -- A great human document, deeply moving, unforgettable.
Sacramento News & Review
In tandem with the ever-growing body of documentaries on the same subject and the data they've all accumulated, it broadens our vision of this great human tragedy. Full Review

New York Magazine/Vulture
Rating: 2.5/5 -- At the risk of sounding like a cad, I'll go ahead and admit that Into the Arms of Strangers is dreadfully boring and uninspired
Description by OLDIES.com:
Just prior to World War II, an extraordinary rescue operation aided the youngest victims of Nazi terror. Ten thousand Jewish and other children were transported from German-held lands to foster homes and hostels in Great Britain. Some built new family ties. Some endured the Blitz. Some, amazingly, found ways to liberate their own parents from Hitler's tyranny. And all have unforgettable stories to tell.
