TEENAGERS WILL MAKE A CARTOON ABOUT THE HERO OF RESISTANCE TO THE HOLOCAUST.
From June 23 to September 30, an international creative laboratory will be held online as part of a project to study European history and involve young people in the creative process on the topic “Jewish resistance in World War II”.
The project involves teenagers aged 13 to 19 with experience in creating animated films from Germany, Belarus and Russia. The result will be the creation of a cartoon about a teenager Jack Kagan, who participated in a unique episode in the history of Jewish resistance during World War II. Together with other prisoners of the labor camp in Novogrudok (Grodno region, Belarus), he managed to escape through the tunnel and join the partisan detachment of the Belsky brothers, who led the resistance movement against the Nazis.
The laboratory program includes a series of webinars with an in-depth immersion in the topic of the Holocaust. The project brought together not only enthusiasts who are fond of animation, history, cinema or fine arts, but also participants in international festivals and young artists. The premiere of the cartoon is scheduled for December 8, 2022, on the Day of Remembrance of the first mass execution of Jews in Novogrudok.
The project is organized by NGO KuBiPro e.V. (Berlin), MOBO “Dialogue” (Minsk), animation film studio “Enfis” (Minsk) and ANO “Resource Center for Social Initiatives” (Moscow) with the support of the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the framework of the program “Eastern Partnership and Russia”.
