During the Second World War, an estimated 10,000
children were born in Norway out of liaisons
between occupying German soldiers and local
women. The Nazis had set up special Lebensborn
homes where these liaisons could take place and
where single mothers and their babies could stay.
After the war life became hell for most of these
Norwegian women and their children. Producer Dheera Sujan of Radio Netherlands brings us Children of the Hated. This program is part of our international documentary exchange series, Crossing Boundaries.
