| Too bad this is not on VHS
I saw this movie as a little girl with my mom. I was too young to understand or appreciate it. I got the opportunity to see it in my twenties and never forgot it. The last time it was shown, I taped it and have never seen it on T. V. again.

The courtyard scene at the end is what I remember most. Other memorable scenes are: the nuns hiding the children at the bottom of the farmer's wheelbarrel while a Nazi officer stabs a pitchfork into it to make sure it is really garbage underneath, the German nun who was angry at hiding the children at the beginning, later winds up saving one of them by hiding her under her habit and the beginning of the film when the nuns asked a little girl her name, and she replies "Jew Dog". She said she had been called that so many times by the Germans that she forgot her real name, and at Yom Kippur when the children read the names of their families who are all dead. This is a wonderful movie. It is a shame it is not available on video or shown on cable.

Lily Palmer as the Mother Superior is outstanding especially noting her beauty.
