If you like many Americans only get your news from President Donald Trump’s Twitter feed, you’ll come to believe that all Syrian refugees are terrorists.
A new video released by UNICEF challenges that obscene assertion. In it, an 80-year-old man discusses his traumatizing experience as a child refugee escaping Nazi Germany. A Syrian boy, himself a refugee, then recounts his own story.
Their stories end with the same heartbreaking quote.
“I am alive. I am one of the lucky ones.”
