A powerful new film, presenting the stories of a young Syrian refugee and a World War II child refugee has been released by Unicef as an illustration of the challenges that refugee children continue to face.

The film, created by 180 Amsterdam, draws stark parallels between the experiences of Harry, a World War II child refugee and Ahmed, a young boy displaced by the conflict in Syria, highlighting the gravity of the refugee crisis facing the world today.

Urging viewers to support Syria’s refugee children, the film is part of Unicef’s For Every Child campaign, a commitment to promoting the rights and improving the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children.
