Beyond the Fire: Teen Experiences of War

8/22/2013 6:00:00 AM
What heart-wrenching decisions these 15 teenagers have had to make to escape conflict in their home countries! Listen to each teen recount his or her harrowing experiences while watching pictures of what each had to go through. This documentary was made in 2004 and now these teens are safe, but they are but representatives of hundreds of thousands of other children in similar circumstances in countries around the world where conflict has become a way of life. You’ll hear stories of teens from Somalia, Sudan, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Afghanistan, Bosnia, Kosovo, and Iraq. The transcripts are available to be read, and there are lessons for teachers to use in conjunction with this moving site.
