Project description

The project strengthens and promotes civil rights, freedom of speech and democratic values. The project helps to challenge negative phenomena (growing support for the far-right movement, anti-Semitism, xenophobia, etc.). The project represents an intersection between culture and education by filming witness statements, exhibitions and educational activities in Slovakia and Norway. The project will feature Post Bellum SK, the Norwegian partner of The Norwegian Center for Holocaust and Minority Studies and the Slovak partner EDAH. One of the activities focuses on the dissemination and development of skills between Post Bellum SK and a Norwegian partner. From this activity, short Slovak and Norwegian films prepared by shooting witness statements will emerge. A two-day conference focusing on educational and cultural activities for university students will be held at the Slovak partner at the Holocaust Museum in Sered. The museum will also host an exhibition called History Determines Our Future, which will house 5 works of art primarily by Slovak authors. The last, but not least activity is the strategic planning and creation of the Post Bellum SK cultural center.
