Well, sacrifices have to be made as well, right?
Episode 6


2015-2017

In the sixth episode of the youth series Kids of Courage (Der Krieg und Ich) the 10-year-old Vera is being evacuated during the battle of Stalingrad in 1942 to an orphanage on the countryside of Kazakhstan. She feels lost among the other orphans, who are hoping to be adopted soon by foster parents, because Vera is convinced that her mother is still alive.


You've succeeded in formulating the big themes of this episode in such clear terms, that every child can take something away.

In an unexpectedly touching way the war is explained in very simple words.
