Generations of Romanian girls trafficked into Europe's sex industry

9534 ratings | 2074789 views
Maya is one of the many Romanian girls lured to work in brothels and massage parlours across Europe in the hope of escaping poverty at home. Often deceived by boyfriends who are little more than pimps, these teenagers are desperate for a better life. Maya is now in a brothel in Switzerland, but her younger sister, Geida, hopes for a different future Subscribe to The Guardian ► http://is.gd/subscribeguardian 6x9 experience solitary confinement ► http://bit.ly/6x9gdn The Guardian ► http://is.gd/guardianhome Suggested videos: ► ► Guardian playlists: Comment is Free ► http://is.gd/cifplaylist Guardian Docs ► http://is.gd/guardiandocs Guardian Features ► https://goo.gl/JThOzd Guardian Animations & Explanations ►http://is.gd/explainers Guardian Investigations ► http://is.gd/guardianinvestigations The Global Migration Crisis ► http://is.gd/RefugeeCrisis Anywhere but Westminster ► https://goo.gl/rgH1ri More Guardian videos: 6x9: experience solitary confinement – 360 video ► http://bit.ly/6x9gdn We Walk Together ► http://bit.ly/WeWalkTogetherFilm The last job on Earth ► http://bit.ly/LastJobOnEarth Patrick Stewart: the ECHR and us ► http://bit.ly/PatrickStewartS The Panama Papers ► http://bit.ly/HowToHide1Billion The Syrian Spaceman who became a refugee ► http://bit.ly/SyrianSpace The epic journey of a refugee cat ► http://bit.ly/KunkuzCat If I Die On Mars ► http://is.gd/IfIDieOnMars We can't ban everything that offends you ► http://bit.ly/CensorshipCiF Revenge Porn: Chrissy Chambers and her search for justice ► http://ow.ly/TUoOs Mos Def force fed in Gitmo procedure ► http://is.gd/mosdef Edward Snowden interview ► http://is.gd/snowdeninterview2014 Bangladeshi Sex Workers take steroids ► http://is.gd/sexworkers Other Guardian channels on YouTube: Guardian Football ► http://is.gd/guardianfootball Guardian Music ► http://is.gd/guardianYTmusic Guardian Australia ► http://is.gd/guardianaustralia Guardian Tech ► http://is.gd/guardiantech Guardian Culture ► http://is.gd/guardianculture Guardian Wires ► http://is.gd/guardianwires Guardian Food ► http://is.gd/guardianfood

She left him, knowing that he would get the child if she did so?? What kind of parent does that? He put her into sex trafficking, and she left knowing he'd get the kid? He put her into sex trafficking , what does she think he'll do to the kid?

These beautiful kids should come to USA instead or Europe but unfortunately the EU UN ngo boats and money only funds the trafficking of young men from South Africa

Meanwhile in Murica a 74-year-old man marries a 14-year-old girl Child marriage is a real thing in your own country. 17 of your lovely states have no minimum age for children to marry.

5:57 - "I miss her (her mother). But she's working abroad for our wellbeing". This girl is exceptionally intelligent and mature for being just 7 years old! It's like watching a miracle that I can't believe with my own eyes. I just want to buy her the biggest ice cream cone in the world lol

This isn't how things are meant to be. Westerners loaded with cash, enjoying a comfortable existence, and the rest of the world barely scraping by.

We here in America are supposed to appreciate the diversity that comes with other cultures. So, what should we do if sex trafficking is part of their culture?

This young girl had a baby? Third world people need to stop reproducing! They are overpopulating the world and using up its resources. You should be ashamed of yourselves acting like animals breeding like that as if that is your only purpose in life. You are poor and uneducated. Stop having all those kids. You are a parasite on this planet.

Steven Vayn (1 month ago)
I’m not sure which type of rock you live under or whether you been hiding in a cave most of your life but you do not know Romania. I lived in Romania doing free animal charity work for three years two months and 15 days. I am a born American citizen and I’ve been all over Europe and Eastern Europe. Never in my entire life have I met a bunch of self-centred greedy lying arrogant selfish rude people and the culture in my entire life. They treat all animals like rats. They think because they have a chance to be in the EU that they’re better than anyone else on Earth. Your video cannot be from 2015 obviously it must be some other country or some tiny little village that you isolated to be all of Romania. The picture that you’re trying to paint of Romania is completely wrong.

The little girl is sooooo adorable. I hope she goes to college like she wants to. 😭❤️
seliyna saycrets (1 month ago)
because of her age she can't keep the child - understandable. However why leave the child with the wannabe pimp who tried to use *Her* body to make money, why not offer her more help in raising her child and help her get away from her boyfriend. And they call themselves the law, authority figures.

This language is Romanian and it's a Latin language like Italian so it's normal if it sounds like Italian to you.

Omgoodness I just loved little Geida. She is so old in her spirit and confidence! It's just so sad that these girls feel that they have no other options. But then again it's easy for us to say that at least in the States where we have nothing but options. I really hope for the best for her and all these kids

Sometimes when I run into videos like this or stories, I get mad at myself for being ungrateful sometimes, to what I have. Sad thing that we tend to forget how lucky we are to live normal lives. I feel extreme despair in my chest, my heart goes out to these girls. Can't imagine what they go trough. It's a sad world out there, need to think about it more often.
