News in Review Doukhobor Children: Caught in the Middle

Almost 50 years ago, the British Columbia government ordered the seizure of children in the Doukhobor community. They were taken to a provincially run school and living facility, kept behind barbed wire and separated from their families in order to be educated according to the provincial education curriculum. Now many of the survivors are suing the provincial government for abuse and for what they consider to be their unlawful detention. This documentary contains vivid accounts of what went on during the children's years of confinement.
