Classroom Clip: Salty Sardines

Clip: Season 30 Episode 8 | 1m 14s

The three brothers drive in Tuscany and talk about the experience of being in the cave. Emmanuel, the eldest, has a strong memory of hunger, running out of food and having only sardines to eat. One third of a sardine per person per day was the ration. The story of salty sardines sparks Bubi’s memory of sardines and leads him to realize why he couldn’t stand to eat sardines as an adult.
