In the late 1930s, the tension between countries in Europe grew daily as German leader Adolf Hitler steadily strengthened his country's military forces. His aim was to enlarge German territory to give his people 'lebensraum' or living space. His actions set in motion a chain of events that would lead inexorably to war and affect the lives of everyone in Europe and many beyond. This film is about a group of people, often overlooked, whose lives were changed enormously by the events that were to follow. A group of vulnerable people who had no part to play in the ensuing conflict but many of whom still suffer the effects of what happened to them during World War Two. These are the children who were moved from the cities of Britain to the countryside for their own safety. These are the children who were labelled "evacuees".
