You’ve heard many stories of the Jewish people in World War II. We Were the Lucky Ones brings another tale.

This one is based on a book by Georgia Hunter, which is based on her real family history. It follows the Kurc family, a Polish Jewish family stuck at a time when the Jews were being persecuted by the Nazis. The family is forced to separate as they go on the run, with the hope that they will reunite after World War II.

The character Addy Kurc is based on Hunter’s grandfather. Other members of the family are based on her grandfather’s siblings and other family members. It was important to get the right cast for this series.
