50 Children: The Rescue Mission of Mr. and Mrs. Kraus 9 p.m., HBO

This documentary tells the story of Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus, a couple from Philadelphia, who saved a group of kids in Nazi-controlled Vienna in 1939. Wait, I thought we didn’t know about the Holocaust back then. Anyhoo, the couple managed to pull together enough visas and affidavits from American families willing to take responsibility for the kids. The movie includes interviews with some of the kids, now adults, who were rescued.
