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 Beslan
28 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary is probably the best I've seen because it is told by children. By the children of the Beslan hostage situation that took place in 2005, and ended tragically. Although you watch it through subtitles you don't even notice you are reading. You are reading the dialog and hearing it in the children's voices, such pain and terror. They describe the situation in a way where you can see it through their eyes. The descriptions are so vivid and it really puts you right in there with them. There are really few words to describe how very worth it it is to see, you must see it for yourself. How a child can go through such a horrible ordeal, and come out of it with a clear mind. It explains how it happened and how they are recovering this unforgettable terrorism attack. I highly recommend this film, I wish it would be released on DVD. I would buy it immediately! A must!
