Margaret & Arthur's Story


Young audiences around the world are gaining a better understanding of The Holocaust and its lingering effects as seen through the eyes of  Margaret and Arthur Weisz.

Margaret and Arthur’s Story is a 35 minute documentary that chronicles the Weiszes’ experiences during WWII in a palatable way for audiences as young as 9. 

A shorter, 18 minute version, is available for younger viewers.


Told through the eyes of living Weisz descendants, this documentary addresses themes of courage, survival and love.


It educates youth about the need for tolerance and kindness in our world today.

The documentary was produced by Margaret's Legacy founder (and Margaret & Arthur's granddaughter), Danna Horwood, who was motivated to preserve Margaret's legacy after her passing in 2008 because her 11 year old daughter (at the time) Sari had many unanswered questions  about the atrocities of the Holocaust.


Available in closed captioned.
