Synopsis

This film deals with war orphans following WWII at a children's village in the Swiss Alps where over 200 children from all parts of Europe are gathered. The subplots involve a romance between two of the teachers, the grim decision of Red Poland to quit the experiment, and the problem of the German children being viewed as symbols of oppression rather than as victims the same as the children from other countries. The last credit line is for the Teachers and Children of Pestalozzi Village.
