“We don’t learn about the Holocaust in my school,” Sophie recently shared. “So when I did the movie I had to do a lot of research.”

She added, “Kids my age — our generation — don’t know enough about what happened [during World War II]. Some people think it’s annoying that we keep on making these [Holocaust] movies, but I don’t think so because all of the [concentration] camp survivors are gonna die at some point — they’re not gonna be alive soon — and I just hope that in 100 years people remember what happened, first of all to not let it happen again and sort of for a way to remember the people that died and to remember the people that fought for them. So I just think it’s really important that we keep on making these movies.”
