- Live Action: Youth (11-17)

15-year old Esther tries to stay optimistic when her country is occupied by the Germans during World War II. When being Jewish becomes a threat to her life she has two options: surrendering to the enemy or hiding her true identity. Our multi-platform series ‘Oorlog-stories’ (‘War Stories’) is based on the book “The story of Edith” by Edith van Hessen, the diary she kept as a teenager during the war. What if Edith had used social media to share her voice? The story of a young girl that could have been your classmate, your friend. Or even, could have been you.
