In German-occupied Poland, a group of resourceful Jews found the perfect place to hide from the Nazis, and avoid the mass executions in May of 1943. Enduring hunger, rats, thirst, dysentery, and incredible psychological pressure, they hid for nearly two years in the sewer system beneath the city of Lvov.
