Watch Program | Adoption Month: From Strangers to Family


The couple saw the notice on the bulletin board and volunteered. They knew very little, only that a Jewish child needed a British family to help them escape Nazi Germany. Over eight years, Esther became like a daughter to Harry and Dot Harrison.

Join us as we commemorate Adoption Month with the story of Holocaust survivor Esther Starobin.
