What is Iwalk?
IWalk is an interactive educational program that combines a visit to a Holocaust memorial site with fragments of eyewitness testimony.
The video clips are selected from testimonies from the Shoah Foundation's Visual History Archive. These testimonies, along with photographs, documents, maps, and other primary sources, are posted on the website. They tell a story that combines past events with the present appearance of the area, thus turning an abstract political history into a community of individual human destinies.
What will we discuss at the webinar?
-methodology of using ready-made historical walks
-presentation of three tours by the authors: Tetyana Hushchuk, Kateryna Osypchuk, Miroslav Grinberg
