I saw the movie in the early 60’s on TV. It was in English. I think it was in black and white. If I remember right it was set at christmas time.
There are about 5 children. When the parents die the oldest child takes the sibling around finding homes for them. I’m pretty sure trying to find homes for them all before christmas. I think there was snow. Earlier in the movie one of the children was afraid of something and said “I’m a feared , I’m a feared” i remember that because we used to say it all the time after watching this movie:)
