Read what audiences are saying about "Letters From Brno"

"What an impressive, beautiful film. We often screen films featuring the children who were sent on the kinder transport—and those films usually focus primarily upon the children’s experience. Your film portrays the other side—the utter anguish of the parents sending their children off into unknown safety. The letters of your grandparents are a revelation.  So relatable in their longing to hear even the smallest tidbit of news of their children. Your grandfather’s words to his children—detailing what he and your grandmother wish they could bring to their daughter’s birthday party—were gut-wrenching. As a parent, I could imagine this frustrating pain."
