Refugee’s story turned into Christian Aid film

Thomas Baldwin reports on the WW2 refugee who found sanctuary in Scotland and whose story has been turned into a powerful new animation by Christian Aid.

A film was released to mark the 60th anniversary of Christian Aid Week in May, and highlights the organisation’s long-term commitment to supporting refugees.

It is based on the story of Theodor Davidovic, who came to Scotland in 1947, and now lives in Fife, where he is a member of Auchterderran Kinglassie Parish Church.

Originally from Serbia, Theodor was orphaned as a child and sold into domestic service, eventually joining the resistance movement to fight against Germany. After the war, he found himself in refugee camps in Italy and Germany, but says he never forgot the food parcels he received from Christian Aid. In return, he has supported the charity throughout the entire history of Christian Aid Week.
