We had to flee

What it means to leave your homeland and start afresh somewhere

Almost every child comes into contact in school with refugee children. But what have they experienced while fleeing and why are they here?

This book shows clearly what it means to have to flee and start somewhere afresh. It explains what is in the Geneva Convention on Refugees, what a refugee camp looks like and takes a
look back at history.

It has a practical section at the end: children find out what each of us can do to make it easier for refugees to integrate.
