violence
Scenes of violence including brief beatings and sight of the aftermath of shootings. Dead bodies with moderate bloody detail on them are seen lying on the ground.
threat and horror
Nazi soldiers enter a home searching for hidden Jewish people and make menacing threats of violence towards a family. Other moments of threat are directed at two young boys and include armed soldiers chasing them through a forest whilst shooting at them. A man binds one of the boy's wrists with rope and forces him to walk behind a horse.
discrimination
There are verbal and visual references to the Holocaust throughout. Jewish people are beaten, aggressively rounded up to be sent to concentration camps and called names such as 'rat', 'swine' and 'parasites'. In one scene, a Jewish woman's baby is thrown into the back of a truck as Nazis force people onto transportation.
suicide and self-harm
After attempting to take his own life, a boy quickly changes his mind and is able to prevent any permanent damage being done.
theme
There is a distressing scene of grief after a young character dies.
Infrequent use of mild bad language occurs ('arse') as well as very mild terms ('damn').
