Some videos from the students:
Two animated videos on the topic of the Holocaust, made by ORT high school students in Kiev.
Every year they discuss this topic using creative works of the students.
The film “Butterflies do not live in ghetto” based on the poem, written in 1942 by one of the Shoah’s victims – Paul Friedman.
The film “The dream about the theatre” is the project work in the preparation for the trip “Masa Shorashim” in Poland this year.
