France, 1940 - Child Feeding, La Rouviere
A 17-minute, black and white film begins silently with fire engulfing the town of La Rouviere (98 miles from Marseille) in May 1940, with townspeople fleeing. The film cuts to Howard Kershner, program director for AFSC and the International Commission for the Assistance of Child Refugees in Spain, who explains the Quaker philosophy and gives a brief overview of the child-feeding program.
