(RNS) A new documentary follows a tiny Torah -- smuggled into a concentration camp and entrusted to a young boy, then taken to space by Israel's first astronaut -- from hell on earth to space. By Lauren Markoe.


  1. Wonderful article about a wonderful film. I saw An Article of Hope this spring at a D.C. Film Festival, and think that it is so powerful and important that it is a film that should be shown to every Junior/High School in America. This is not a “Jewish” film, it is much more than that!

  2. This is COMPELLING programming. I certainly hope that PBS finds a place for this important film soon!
