A Czechoslovakian couple's unexpected generosity at the end of World War II changed Henri Landwirth's life. It also led him to found Give Kids the World, a 51-acre Florida resort for terminally ill children that has hosted more than 32,000 families from 50 states and 47 countries. During the war, Belgian-born Landwirth lost everything, including hope. His parents were killed. He was imprisoned in concentration camps, including Auschwitz.
