Children born of war

During World War II 12,000 children were born to Norwegian mothers and German soldiers. In WARS DON’T END five of these children tell their stories about lives of discrimination and abuse stemming from the choices of their mothers and the actions of their fathers. Liv Ullmann's narration binds together a horrific story that starts with Nazi soldiers being encouraged to have children with Norwegian women in order to strengthen the Aryan race. Several decades later the children break the silence, seeking justice for themselves and protection for future children born of war.
