In the Freedom Museum in Groesbeek in Gelderland, a new kids film is now showing that is about making choices during the occupation. The film is especially suitable for children/young people from the upper primary and lower secondary schools. The presentation is in the hands of Youth News presenter Lucas van de Meerendonk. This is reported by the Freedom Museum.
According to the museum is the film is a good introduction to the story of the Second World War and to what can be seen in the permanent exhibition. Making choices in occupation time is central. Education Coordinator of the Freedom Museum Anthony Livius: “The question ‘what would you do?’ seems easy to answer at first. Of course we want to help others and we would prefer to join the Resistance. The reality, however, was more complex. The vast majority of people adapted to the rules of the occupying forces. Your resistance was not without danger. Presenter Lucas shows this well in the film in a child-friendly (but not childish) way.”
The film was festively launched on July 20 premiere with the kids from the #Vteam, complete with red carpet and popcorn. Afterwards, a lively discussion arose about what freedom means today and how we can protect the freedom of others. Livius: “That is exactly what we want to achieve with this film and our exhibition: that young visitors too will realize that the call for freedom did not stop in 1945, but that we still have to work to protect it.”
