In Focus: War Children in Europe
On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII in May 2015, we would like to put the focus on those who were confronted in their childhood and youth with war, occupation, genocide, flight and expulsion, or were born during this period.
In 2006, then a pupil at a Danish high school, Kathrine Labaek interviewed both of her grandfathers who experienced World War II in Denmark: One as a child in a Danish port city, the other as a teenager fighting in the Danish resistance movement against the German occupiers.
Read a short excerpt of Kathrine's work.
