Last November, we invited students and teachers from the 13th Secondary School in Wrocław to a workshop where they learned about the methodology of collecting oral testimonies and working with time witnesses. Afterwards, we invited the students, under the supervision of their teachers, to prepare films on one of the selected topics:
- Between PRL and III RP. How Wrocław changed in the early 1990s.
- A family story - the beginnings of democracy in Poland.
Despite the constraints of the epidemic situation and the remote school work, it went great!
More than 200 students, working in teams, prepared interesting films in which they showed not only their creativity and knowledge of history, but also their sense of humour.
We would like to thank all the students and teachers involved from the 13th Secondary School in Wrocław. We are glad that despite obvious difficulties you have the strength and willingness to tell in a clever way about the not so distant past.
Actions were organised within the framework of the "1990 / Year One. The democratic transformation in former Eastern Bloc countries" project, which aims to understand and provide knowledge about changes that took place in 1990 in Poland, Germany, Czechoslovakia, Lithuania and other Baltic countries.
The project partners of the Krzyżowa Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe are: Paweł Włodkowic Institute (Poland), Stiftung Adam von Trott, Imshausen e.V. (Germany), Post Bellum (Czech Republic) and Anyksciu svietimo pagalbos tarnyba (Lithuania).
The project is implemented within the framework of the Europe for Citizens Programme - Strand 1. European Remembrance programme and is co-financed by the European Commission.
