This picture book captures a real-life account of a young girl's journey from Zimbabwe to seek asylum in a new country.
This picture book tells the story of 12-year-old refugee Juliane. At the age of three Juliane was separated from her mother due to the conflicts happening in her home country of Zimbabwe.
Told in Juliane's own words, the story tells of her distress and isolation while growing up in an African orphanage, until an incredible chance meeting with her mother reunites the two of them. They apply for political asylum and are finally able to re-establish a life together in their new host country.
The BAFTA award-winning Seeking Refuge stories were originally produced as animations for the BBC. These powerful and evocative stories have now been captured in book form as rich, visual testimonies of the torment, hope and resolution of young refugees who are seeking asylum and adjusting to life in new countries all over the world.
The series of five books form an excellent cross-curricular resource that looks at asylum, war, separation and integration and what it is to be a refugee today making them ideal for tying into Refugee Week.
