France's Stolen Children - documentary

Rated 0
by people.

France's Stolen Children, a 2018 BBC Our World short documentary hosted by Katie Razzell about children who were taken to France during the 1960's and 1980's.

 

In just over 20 years, 20,000 children were "stolen" from the Island of Reunion in the Indian Ocean and sent to live in France. The French government was primarily interested in repopulating rural regions in the country as well as giving those children and a better education and over-all higher standard of living.

 

Now "France's Stolen Children" are middle-aged and some are looking for compensation or at least an apology from France. For they never asked to be moved from their homes and many want to find their long lost relatives back on Reunion.
