The video competition for Ukrainian students was the chance for young people from schools and the universities to create a video on two topics:
- “Our Town’s Jewish History”
- “Civil Rights and Civil Society in Ukraine in the 21st Century”
The participants were challenged to create an innovative and creative film of around 7 minutes which presented one of the two topics as a historically accurate and interesting story. Centropa provided them with video guidelines and practical tips on how to create videos.
The Trans.History team received around 13 videos from schools all over the country, the majority of them focusing on “Our Town’s Jewish History”. All videos showed that the students had risen up to the challenge and provided a new and creative insight into their town’s and country’s history.
