After the Holocaust, R. Yosef Kahaneman zt'l , the Ponevezhe Rabbi and Rosh Yeshiva began looking for Jewish children who had survived the Holocaust. It was known that some of the children had ended up in churches and were being raised as Christians. The Rov encountered one church that denied the existence and presence of Jewish children within their midst... He was granted permission to enter the children's quarters to inspect for himself -- when he entered he began calling out "Shema Yisroel" and instinctively many of the children raised their hands to cover their eyes and started calling out "mama! mama!"

A true incident. I think that the Chief Rabbi of Israel, Rabbi Yitzchak Herzog was also involved in getting out these precious souls from the Church as well.
