Statement from the political party DIE LINKE in Germany on Holocaust Day (in German):
An exhibition of student-created artwork, installations based on historical photgraphs provided by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Through their installations, the students and their teachers from six different schools in Hungary addressed the question of local complicity, collaboration and rescue during the Holocaust. One of the most recent and most innovative projects of the Visual World Foundation in Hungary that contributes to awareness raising about the bystander effect as well as to visual arts and media literacy education.
