Feiga Shamis

Who was Feiga Shamis?

A Jewish mother of 12 desperate to save her family from pogroms.

Coming soon — the first-ever documentary about little known Jewish massacres in Eastern Europe after WWI. Told through the rare, first-hand account of survivor Feiga Shamis, a Jewish mother of 12,  who was driven by events to put two of her children in an orphanage. “My Dear Children” is a window into this forgotten history and the daring rescue mission that saved those two children.
