Ten Days in Berlin
Bringing Children To Freedom
From 1959 to 1961 a small group of young people in West Berlin participated in a little-known program to reunite children and parents separated by the Iron Curtain. Maria would go behind the Iron Curtain to collect the children one by one and walk them to freedom. The journeys took from two days to six weeks. Along the way she had to avoid the military and the secret police while scavenging for food and shelter. The children were unaware that they were going to cross the border. Maria escorted 400 children to freedom.
