Private Project


Former street children want to make a difference.
Together with a social worker, an architect and a historian, they plan a symbolic grave on the memorial site for a Nazi extermination camp in Brandenburg.

The film observes conversations and interactions between the young residents and the experts. From practical research on the history of the location and on the meaning of spaces, forms, gestures, the young people create something new: an extension of the memorial site. Thus, they define their own way of commemoration.

The film shows how young people practice participation.

Produced as part of the youth program of FILM WITHOUT BORDERS e.V.
