Storyline

On September 1, 2004, a group of heavily armed rebel extremists stormed into School No. 1 in Beslan, Russia. For three days, more than a thousand children and adults were held hostage in a sweltering gymnasium, denied food and water, and forced to keep their hands over their heads. The harrowing siege ended on September 3 with a series of explosions and a hail of gunfire that killed some 350 people - half of them children. In this film, the youngest survivors of Beslan tell their story. Written by Anonymous

Children of Breslan
26 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was easily the single most memorable documentary I have ever seen. It really moves you when you're listening to eyewitness accounts of the tragedy through the surviving children. Emotions run wild as you learn what these children went through. There were points where I was just overcome with sadness when these young children no more than 10 years old describe events that only a Vietnam veteran might take for granted. Of course there was anger towards the terrorists. It puts things in perspective, as well as suggesting the extremes to which terrorists may go to make their statement. I was surprised that this documentary did not win the Emmy that it was nominated for.
