Wolfskinder after 1945 - Documentary

Recommended Posts

Wolfskinder - wolfs' children  as they were known
In the final months of the war and the early postwar years , tens of thousands of German children as orphans or lost in the retreat from the former German provinces in Eastern Europe and the Baltic states took to the woods and remote areas. Some did not even remember their names, parents or identity. Many wandered through East Prussia, Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia begging locals for food and accomodation, finally ending up in Soviet children's homes and were given a new identity and a new language, many also did not survive their ordeal.  Most of these children were on German Red Cross lists, but to no avail.

Is this a double post Fritz, they both seem to be the same clip?

It was a double posting - I had difficulty posting part 1 - here, just the link for part 1.   There is also a part 3.
