Description of Resource

This interactive Website chronicles the stories of fifteen refugee teenagers, who lived through warfare and fled their homes in eight different countries. Their stories are complete with photographs of family and loved ones that bring their experiences of war to life. The Web site also provides a brief chronology of the events in each country to explain how the conflict developed. These fifteen refugee teenagers illustrate the types of experiences that refugee youth encounter abroad before being resettled.
