THE BIG PICTURE:
World War II began with the Nazi’s invading first Eastern, then Western Europe - forcing many refugees to flee. Three teenage Belgians were among them. Nobody Wants Us is their story.
Nobody Wants Us is a 43-minute documentary film about three teens and their families escaping war-torn Europe, hoping to be allowed into the US.
The ultimate goal of these modules is to inspire thought and action in students so that they understand how each of us is a part of creating history.
