This story would be thought completely incredible had it not been for the fact that this documentary was made to record the accounts of the four living survivors of the Jews who successfully hid from the Nazis in the sewers under the city of Lvov, Ukraine during World War II. Through the steadfast determination and profound suffering of these exiles, and through the kindness of a Catholic sewer worker who kept them alive with provisions and kept the Nazis hunting for them in these sewers away from their secret hiding place. Do not be surprised if you simultaneously cry and rejoice both that the human spirit can survive such terrible things - let alone be astonished that one of their number succesfully infiltrated in and out of a local German concentration camp to help rescue friends and family!

The Lviv Pogroms were the consecutive pogroms and massacres of Jews in June and July 1941 in the city of Lwow in Eastern Poland/Western Ukraine (now Lviv, Ukraine). The massacres were perpetrated by Ukrainian nationalists (specifically, the OUN), German death squads, and urban population from 30 June to 2 July, and from 25 to 29 July, during the German invasion of the Soviet Union. Thousands of Jews were killed both in the pogroms and in the Einsatzgruppen killings. Ukrainian nationalists targeted Jews in the first pogrom on the pretext of their purported responsibility for the NKVD prisoner massacre in Lviv, which left behind thousands of corpses in three Lviv prisons. The subsequent massacres were directed by the Germans in the context of the Holocaust in Eastern Europe. The pogroms were ignored or obfuscated in Ukrainian historical memory, starting with OUN's actions to purge or whitewash its own record of anti-Jewish violence. In 2016, a memorial was erected commemorating the victims of the pogrom on the site of the former Golden Rose Synagogue.
