The story of a generation of refugee children and young people trying to find their place in Europe, and of those who never found it. “Our Life as Refugee Children in Europe” is a brave, first-hand testimony told by children and youngsters of different nationalities who arrived in Greece and Sweden and have since been waiting. These are the voices of a generation forced to leave their home and childhood to find a safe place to live and rebuild their lives. This is the story of those who made it, but also of those who never arrived.
