To discover an excerpt from the movie:
In the framwork of its activities of popular education and civic expression, the association initiated and led a European project from 2013 to 2015, gathering a French-German team willing to make a documentary, in a pedagogical approach, on the memory of the Holocaust in Ukraine.
The movie has also been put together in team. Hence, it is a true collective and intercultural creation, which production could not have been possible without each’s skills and complementarity (theoretical and scientific, linguistic and cultural, digital and technical…).
Faithful to the working methods of the association, beyond the collective creation, it represented a project of popular education during which the team of young people developped and acquired know-how and skills. By conveying the movie, their discoveries can be transmitted to the public, as well as their own understanding of the subject, their own vision of memory in general, and especially the memory of the Holocaust through the complex case of Ukraine. It is a real civic involvement, aiming at decrying the barbaric nature of Nazi crimes, and questioning our relationship, as youngsters, to this marking event of the 20th Century; it also represents an involvement to share several values: the respect of the other, of living together and peace.
