Lost Innocence: The Children of World War II




Lost Innocence: The Children of World War II
 1989 | Canadian Broadcasting Corporation

With each passing year, the experience of World War II has drifted form recent to distant memory. This is a shame, since the voices of the survivors are the lasting legacy to its victims, especially the children. Lost Innocence: The Children of World War II is a stirring elegy to the thousands of innocents who perished. By presenting emotional and stirring recollections of those who survived, executive producer Karen Levine, associate producer Grazna Krupa and host Timothy Findlay, have produced a document of extraordinary impact. In its deliberations, the Peabody Board singled out one episode of this six-part series for special mention: Children of the Holocaust. For radio of historical importance and emotional impact, a Peabody Award is presented to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for Lost Innocence: The Children of World War II.
