Displaced Person is the story of a post World War II black German boy orphan who seeks his father. Until now, he has never met or seen another black person in his life. When he reaches American soldiers, he attaches himself to the African American Seargent in charge. Instead, the boy calls him "Papa" and he becomes attached to the boy. He is the consciousness of the film. While it is a short story and old after-school special, it did win an Emmy award for outstanding children's program. It certainly deserved it. This short story is excellently done with a fine cast including one of my favorites, Rolf Saxon, in a small role. It should be studied and seen in classes especially in urban cities and even in the rural areas. Children can learn to identify easily with these characters.
