Hamid's Story. A Journey from Eritrea

Part of the series "Seeking Refuge"

von: Andy Glynne

As a ten-year-old, Hamid and his mother flee from their home country Eritrea to escape the border conflict between Eritrea and Ethiopia. They are forced to leave Hamid’s father behind because he is entrusted with confidential information. Following an exhausting flight, mother and son arrive in Europe. Yet, they find it hard to feel at home. One day they receive the news that their father has died.


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.
