Last week young people from five countries met in Hamburg to remember the children from Bullenhuser Damm and to think about the future of remembrance.
Twenty Jewish children were killed by the SS at Bullenhuser Damm on April 20, 1945 in order to conceal the fact that they were subjected to medical experiments at the Neuengamme concentration camp.
Young people, coming primarily from the places the murdered children were deported from, took part in an international youth meeting project. In their countries they did some research on the murdered children, visited memorials, conducted interviews and prepared presentations. Last week these young people from Radom (Poland), Paris (France), Eindhoven (The Netherlands), Messina (Italy) and Hamburg (Germany) met in Hamburg - they shared their thoughts on the future of remembrance, personally met the children’s relatives and participated in the 70th anniversary commemorative ceremony.
One workshop with students from different countries produced a film about the youth project: Remember Bullenhuser Damm
