Presentation of workshop results
Young Worcation participants worked for two weeks in three workshop groups: archaeological, theatrical and artistic, and the results of their activities could be admired by all invited guests.
Participants in the archaeological workshop, led by archaeologist Pavel Zawadzki, presented their findings directly at the archaeological site. The numerous artifacts that were excavated and cleaned gave the participants a glimpse of the difficult fate of the POWs who left the found objects at Stalag VIII A almost 80 years ago.
The theater workshop participants then presented the results of their work at the European Center for Remembrance, Education and Culture. The theatrical performance addressed this year’s theme “Propaganda and Disinformation” in an impressively emotional way.
Shortly afterwards, the results of the art workshops were presented, which were divided into two parts. During the first week of the meeting, young people worked on a comic book, a postcard and a T-shirt design – here, too, the connection to the theme was a strong theme of the individual stories. In the second part of the meeting, the young Europeans tackled film art. They worked on the film “Behind the Scenes,” the broadcast of which concluded the final event as a touching conclusion.
After the successful conclusion, Meetingpoint and the Foundation invited everyone to talk about the memorial together.
