Rachel's Story. A Journey from a Country in Eurasia

Part of the series "Seeking Refuge"

von: Andy Glynne

Rachel's family is Christian and is both threatened and excluded in their Muslim country. The family flees to Europe. However, after a short, unburdened time they are in custody pending deportation. Back where they came from, the family is even more threatened than before. Once more, they seek refuge in Europe. Rachel lives in constant fear of deportation. But then she receives the message she has been waiting for: the family has been granted an unlimited residence permit.


What makes people want to flee from home? How do refugee children experience the loss of friends or family and the arrival in the unfamiliar new home country? Refugee children from around the world share their story in “Seeking Refuge”, a series of five short animated films: Ali from Afghanistan, Juliane from Zimbabwe, Navid from Iran, Rachel from Eurasia and Hamid from Eritrea. They speak about their flight from home, their concerns and fears, their hopes and dreams.
