Description

European Network Remembrance and Solidarity is launching a recruitment process for an ongoing educational project called In Between?, which aims to encourage the young generation of Europeans to explore 20th-century history by speaking with those who lived it. Participants are given a unique opportunity to gain theoretical and practical experience in documenting oral stories.

After 4-day workshops in Warsaw participants will have learned the theoretical basics of interview methodology, digital video camera operation, photography, digitalisation of visual materials, archiving and historical context. Then, they will be divided into groups of six to travel to border towns and other localities for seven days. During their stay they will conduct and document interviews with local inhabitants. Recollections, sound and video recordings, photographs, letters as well as scanned documents and other items reflecting the daily life of the communities will constitute a basis for building accounts of their travel that will be shared with historical institutions and local archives, including the National Digital Archive and the Virtual Shtetl (Museum of the History of Polish Jews).
