The Evacuees

Documentary about the thousands of children evacuated from Belfast during the Second World War. Separated from their relatives and familiar streets, and sent to live with strangers in the countryside, many did not know where they were going, nor for how long. But one thing was certain - the experience would change the children's lives forever.
