Hermann Gmeiner - Founder of SOS Children's Village

SOS Kinderdorf - Hermann Gmeiner

Albert Schweitzer once described the children's villages as «the most pleasant miracle of the post war era.» As Hermann Gmeiner's idea was fi rst put into practice in 1949 no one could have imagined its groundbreaking success. Today there are almost 2000 establishments and assistance programs in 138 countries and territories, which help thousands of children and young people fi nd accommodation and protection. To mark the 90th birthday of Hermann Gmeiner and the 60th anniversary of the founding of the fi rst children's village, this documentary sheds light on the founder and his ideas. Every-day-examples and exclusive insights show the development of SOS Children's Villages into an international organisation that encourages homeless children to face life again and helps those families who live in diffi cult conditions.
