Before a visit to a memory site

Educational materials were prepared for the high-school students to help them gain basic knowledge before a visit to the Kaunas Ninth Fort Museum and Mauthausen Memorial Site. Materials created as part of the Sound in the Silence project – Sound in the Silence is an intercultural and international remembrance project for youth. At historically challenging locations students work with artists representing different artistic fields in order to understand how the past is connected to their questions in the present. (
