What does it mean to be a refugee in a foreign country?

The documentaries for children on the subject of flight and migration show four real fates that could not be more different. What the films have in common, however, is that they fully engage with the protagonists' perspectives and report on their view of things. These films are particularly suitable for educational work because they give other children direct access to what it means to be a refugee in a foreign country.
