Today the documentation of the project arrived. It is a small brochure with texts and photos. They will soon go on their way to the project Partners!
Some press articles were released in the last days, Although all in German, we would like to present them here also.
The film made by the workshop will soon be sent to you on a DVD and will be presented also on our vimeo channel (this will take some time, sorry for that!) Also there is a TV report including short interviews with the Polish and Italian students (from the interview- and the video-workshop when they were at Bullenhuser Damm with Ytzhak Reichenbaum). Unfortunately this isn´t presented online.

Yesterday the commemoration ceremony for the children of Bullenhuser Damm took place in the school gym in Bullenhuser Damm – on the 70th day of their death. Relatives of the children from all over the world were attending – from USA, Israel, Italy, France, Germany. This year our Youth Meeting Project had the possibility to be a part of the ceremony – with a film (well done, Workshop V!), with poems, a speech, balloons and a minute of silence (ideas and realisation by Workshop II – you were great onstage), with an handout about how remembrance might look in the future (Workshop III) and many more. Also our young people asked family members to plant roses together with them in the Memorial´s rosegarden. For us, the organisators, it was a great final point of our project and we are so pleased to see how everyone was making friends. With some photos of yesterday I would like to thank everyone participated in this project – knowing about what happened in the past will make a difference for a better future.
