The First International Training Memory Walk in Kiev

From 13 to 16 December 2014 in Kyiv the first international training of creating  videos "Memory walk" was conducted. Young and active German and Ukrainian participants passed  the road of historical memory and tried to search answers to important questions. Well known Kyiv memorials, associated with human rights violations and discrimination helped to find  the clue to them.

During the 4-day training "Memory walk" 9   German and 7 Ukrainian participants explored the theme of historical memory and its role in the future of society, trying to evaluate  the  impact of such historical events as Holodomor, Babi Yar and Maidan.

Participants were united into three groups, shooting video and interviewing passers-by near the monument  to Anatoly Kuznetsov  (a boy reading the order of the Nazis on the wall), a monument to the victims of the Holodomor of 1932-1933 and on the street of  "Heroes of the Heaven hundred" (Maidan events).

The videos available at the following link.
