This is a remarkable story of a tiny Torah smuggled into the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp by a rabbi. Knowing he would not survive, the rabbi entrusts the Torah to a boy for safekeeping, asking only that he tell its story. Years later, Israeli astronaut Ilan Ramon takes this Torah with him into space.
