The series is inspired by the incredible true story of one Jewish family separated at the start of WWII.

Joey got the chance to meet the real-life daughter of her character Halina Kurc while filming in Spain last year. Keep reading to find out more… “It was this very emotional, beautiful moment.

The first thing she said to me when she met me, she outstretched her arms and she looked at me and she said, ‘Mama,’” Joey told Gold Derby. “She had not met me yet, hasn’t seen any of the work I’ve done to portray her mother yet, yet is here giving me this warm embrace and confidence that says, ‘Yes, you are playing my mother and I’m so excited.’ It just felt like a real big green light for me.” Pictured here: Joey attending the THR Frontrunners Q&A for the series, moderated by Tyler Coates, on Monday (May 13) in Los Angeles.
