WW2 Through Digital Art: History Told by the Young


WW2 Victory Day is among the most remarkable dates of the 20th century. But younger people are losing connection with this important part of history. That's why we created #VictoryPages - a project giving young people a chance to learn history through social media and express themselves in digital art. During our session, we will reveal how inviting students into the production of the biggest digital storytelling media project dedicated to WW2 history has been a major educational success.
