In the autumn of 1944 75,000 Norwegians became refugees in their own country, after the Germans set fire to their homes. Through meetings between some of these now elderly Norwegians and refugee children from Syria and Sudan, Norwegian history is linked to the refugee crisis of today. The documentary reflects on the impact war has on children and how difficult memories never fade. How will the experiences of today's refugee children affect them in 70 years? And what lessons can we learn from our own history in order to better help those who are in need today?
