As part of the programs in History and French classes, as well as those of “EMC” on the construction of the European citizen, a historical and memorial trip to Poland took place from 9th to 12th April 2019 for pupils in “1ère” at the LFSL.
The students were based in Krakow. The program included a visit to the Old Town, Wawel Castle, the Schindler Museum, a synagogue and an old Jewish cemetery, the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp and a meeting with a second world war witness.
The students had worked on testimonies of this historical period in collaboration with their French teachers .
On site, they took photos and recorded excerpts from the works they had studied on Auschwitz-Birkenau. It is sometimes necessary to listen, a wind blew rather strong during the recordings. We then compiled their work and we made a kind of digital journey.
Here is a link to their work
