FRONTLINE: Children Of Syria Since 2011, millions of Syrians have fled the brutal fighting inside their country, seeking safety, stability, and the chance at a better life in an exodus that has helped to fuel Europe's largest migration crisis since the end of World War II. Against this backdrop, Children of Syria is an unforgettable story of both sadness and survival, and a profound exploration of identity, family and the meaning of home.

Filmed on the ground as the fighting rages, the documentary follows four Syrian children - Sara, Farah, Helen, and Mohammed - over three years, from their struggle to live through the Assad regime's siege of their home city Aleppo, to the devastating kidnapping of their father, to the beginning of their new lives as refugees in Germany, ever cognizant of all they've lost and left behind.

With the Syrian war in its sixth year, its death toll now estimated at 470,000, and thousands of refugees arriving in Europe every day, FRONTLINE's Children of Syria is a story of war, grief, hope, and what it means to start again.

Perspective on the Syrian refuge crisis
Review by Tejas on 07/17/20 review stating Perspective on the Syrian refuge crisis
Incredible access to the horror of war in the city of Aleppo by focusing on one family. The father was a rebel fighting the government forces while his wife and four children remained in the increasingly bombed out city. After the father was kidnapped by ISIS, the mother and children finally flee to Turkey refugee camp and eventually were accepted by Germany to immigrate. But the impact of the the war continues even in the calm of a small city in the German countryside where the family was relocated.
