Light in the Midst of Darkness: the Story of the Hardaga Family

The Kavilios, a Jewish family who lived in Sarajevo in 1941, were protected from Nazi persecution by the Hardaga family. 

Fifty years later, the Kavilios family rescued the Hardaga family from ethnic cleansing of Muslims in the same city. 

This is the story of two families who gave life and hope to each other.
