Another PBS winner. This story of a handful of mainly Syrian refugees seeking a new life in Europe-- over the course of a year. This documentary brings home their heartbreaking stories. One can only hope that the US switches gears to support the relocation of these forced migrants.

This excellent FRONTLINE documentary about the European Refugee crisis that follows the lives of some families and individuals who are escaping their home countries be it Syria, Afghanistan and West Africa to different parts of Europe.
There are many aspects of the dangerous journeys that we are not aware of even watching the news. Sadly the human traffickers are liars, money takers and even sell ‘fake’ life jackets to the desperate refugees.
Sometimes it may take months and months of running and hiding. Some even practice swimming before leaving. Some images are from refugees smartphones recording their dangerous journeys. There is more to this than just crossing the Mediterranean Sea. Very tense to watch but well worth it.

It certainly puts a human face on the refugee problem throughout the world.
After watching this documentary I have a lot more empathy towards refugees.

Great old historical epic about the founding of Israel!!! Excellent cast and terrific music. If you have not seen this film, do so!!!! Four paws up from Abby Tabby and Kristi
