Overview

The Cigarette Sellers of Three Crosses Square is the true story of a group of Jewish children who managed to escape from the Warsaw Ghetto in 1942 and survive in the Aryan section of the Nazi-occupied city. After the destruction of the ghetto, these children came together for mutual succor. Sentenced to death, hounded at every step, they kept themselves alive by peddling cigarettes in Warsaw's Three Crosses Square - where the author, a member of the Jewish Underground in Poland, met and helped them and recorded their story. Several of the children were finally caught and killed, but most survived.
