Paul Saitowitz Even in the height of darkness, some still have the ability to see the light. "The Boys of Buchenwald" is the story of more than 400 young boys, orphaned by the perilous events of the Holocaust, who are sent to a children's home in France to try and reassemble some sort of normalcy and pick up the pieces of their childhood. Although difficult to deal with and rather dysfunctional at first, many of the boys eventually find their way back into society and go on to live productive healthy lives.

Young boys gathered around a fenced area in a Costa Mesa parking lot, watching intently and cheering. Inside the fence, the air was thick and hot with action, even as the evening turned colder and cloudier. It was the third annual Save Our Youth Street-Soccer Tournament, an intramural event in which city youth are allotted the time and the space to compete in one of their favorite sports. The idea was simple: gather young boys from the economically disadvantaged pockets of the city and give them an avenue to positively channel their energies.

Brandon Fetta and the 15-year-old boy he is advocating for enjoy their “monding” time. Whether that word even exists is irrelevant, Fetta said, because the “male bonding” it represents is as real as it gets. Fetta, 26, is a trained volunteer with Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Orange County, a nonprofit agency that recruits, trains and supervises community volunteers who mentor and support children who are victims of severe abuse, abandonment or neglect.
