        Children of Syria: A Refugee Family Adjusts to a New Life

        Follow a Syrian refugee family as they are granted asylum in Germany and begin the process of resettling in the small mountain town of Goslar, in these two short videos excerpted from FRONTLINE: Children of Syria. Having fled the war-torn country of Syria, Hala and her children react to leaving their beloved country and settling into life in a foreign land. As the family adjusts to their new life, they observe how they have changed and how their lives in Europe have become so different from their lives in Syria. Although the resettlement has offered the family stability and safety, they also long for their homeland. This resource is part of the FRONTLINE Collection.

        Mature Content Advisory Note: These videos contain footage of children playing with toy guns in a mock gun battle. Presenting the images allows students to understand how guns become a “normal” part of the daily life and play of children in a war zone. The images also show how prevalent the fighting is in the children’s memories of their life in Syria.

        Teacher Support Materials for this resource, including Teaching Tips, a Student Handout, a Vocabulary, Terms, and People handout, a Background Essay, a Map, and video transcripts are available for download: Teacher Support Materials Package
