On 20 and 21 March, pupils from Jonas Jablonskis gymnasium of Kaunas and Simonas Daukantas gymnasiums of Vilnius took part in a review of the film “Who will write our history”. The film was presented at Martynas Mažvydas national library of Lithuania in Vilnius.
Reviews of the film, produced in 2017 (directed by Roberta Grossman), were ongoing in various countries in 2019, commemorating the International Holocaust Remembrance Day – January 27. The Secretariat of the International Commission has contacted the UNESCO organization and obtained the rights to organize a review of the film „Who will write our history“for educational purposes. The Secretariat of the International Commission together with UNESCO Lithuania and Martynas Mažvydas national library of Lithuania invited schools of Tolerance education centers to participate in film reviews. The first ones to answer were two gymnasiums, whose pupils, accompanied by teachers Saulius Skučas and Vytautas Stundžia attended the film reviews in English.
The film tells about a ghetto in Warsaw, where a group of imprisoned intellectuals decide to write down everything that happens in the ghetto. Writing the daily history has become the goal to preserve evidence for history of what people have experienced and have felt.
