  • “I thought it (the exhibition) was really brilliant because there were lots of stories about the Meixican people and lots of speeches and when we look at the stories I felt that I was scared because if I was in that time, I might be dead because of the war that killed their Father. The leaflet was brilliant because it was a story about him and Mexican people. Their story was important because it was true. Because Ive seen lots in my life, because I have lots of things in my life like war and I want to learn more about them. Was it like my story or not? The Mexican people worked hard to get their freedom to show the people what their life was like.”Walid Year 6
