Follow up: An incredible but true story; Marzia's uncle prisoner of war in Przemysl

The Polish Partners investigated on the STALAG, they sent us photos of a mass grave and the Soviet - Italian Cemetery.

Marzia's uncle survived the concentration camp in Przemysl as an Italian prisoner of war. He was arrested by the Germans and taken to different concentration camps (STALAG - Stammlager). Other prisoners didn't survive...

Our Colleague Joanna from Przemysl sent us the following explanations: "These are the pictures from near Przemyśl, they renovated the cemetery of Soviet and Italian soldiers. It has recently been renovated. I talked to our history teacher today and he said that finally somebody started taking care of places like this. Before it was a dump where young rebels met to drink beer.

 

The articles Gosia sent you are about this place. One is about mass graves discovered after 70 years, the other is about the fact that they are renovating the place. Aga has a friend who is a historian and she wrote her MA thesis about this place. We think we can use some fragments and use them on the website or Wikispaces. Gosia together with other history teacher are planning a bigger project about this place so you'll hear more about it soon."

Royals talk mental health

(CNN)It is rare for the Duchess of Cambridge, wife of Prince William, to speak candidly on film. But in a video released Friday, Kate talks openly with her husband and Prince Harry about mental health and the importance of discussing mental wellbeing.

The video, filmed at Kensington Palace earlier this week, is part of the Heads Together campaign, which aims to end the stigma around mental health. The three young royals have been spearheading the campaign since its launch in 2016.

Back to yesterday

In the Astra Museum - an openair Museum with old houses - we learned more about the past. E.g. we visited an old school which looked like the School had to look during the time of comunism. The photos of the head of the comunist party hung on the walls, as well the flags of the pioneers, an institution for children.
There were workshops with the topic 'migration' and Mathematics.


An incredible, but true story

Marzia's uncle

Marzia, the Italian coordinator told us today an incredible but true Story. When her uncle passed away she had to clean up his Apartment. When she was sorting out his belongings some months ago, she found documents on his time as a prisoner in concentration camps. One of those camps was situated in Przemysl, where an other partner of the project comes from.  Gosia from Przemysl confirmed the fact that there was a concentration camp after war in her town. What a coincidence!
