        Children of Syria: A Syrian Family Becomes a Refugee Family

        Follow four Syrian children as they survive ongoing fighting in the war-torn city of Aleppo, in these two short videos excerpted from FRONTLINE: Children of Syria. Since 2012, Aleppo, which was once a hub of trade and commerce in the Middle East, has been on the front line of attack in Syria’s brutal civil war. The four children—Sara, Farah, Mohammed, and Helen—describe their day-to-day life as the children of a rebel group leader living in an abandoned house in the midst of the conflict. After a militant group kidnaps their father, their mother decides to leave the city with her children and join the hundreds of thousands of Syrians who have fled the brutal fighting to begin new lives as refugees. This resource is part of the FRONTLINE Collection.

        Mature Content Advisory Note: These videos contain footage of gunfire being carried out by a rebel group (no target is shown). Given the topic of the videos, the images allow students to have a more accurate portrait of the intensity of living in a war-torn city.
