An increasing number of people are taking part in workshops and museum lessons organized by the Remembrance Museum.
Of particular interest are the latest educational offerings in the form of two workshops – the first on Władysława Rzepecka, a courier in the Home Army, and the second on the daring escape of four Auschwitz prisoners from the camp on 29th December 1942. The popularity of these meetings is due to their attractive course and adaptation to the needs of different age groups – from elementary school students to senior citizens.
“The latest workshops are based on the film “Courier Girl” and are preceded by a screening lasting less than an hour,” say museum educators Anita Bury and Joanna Cebulska.
The picture, directed by Marek Luzar and co-financed by the Remembrance Museum, tells the story of Władysława Rzepecka, pseud. “Wanda” and is made with the latest animation techniques.
More about the film:
In recent days, eighth-grade students from the Elementary School with Integrative Branches No. 4 in Oswiecim and senior citizens from the Day Care Centre in Oswiecim participated in workshops about “Courier Girl.”
Currently, the Remembrance Museum offers nearly 20 diverse classes dedicated to the Land of Oświęcim and its heroes. Among them are such as:
“History hidden in objects”
“The Guardian Angel from the pharmacy in Brzeszcze – Maria Bobrzecka”
“Portrait of a courier – the activities of Helena Plotnicka”
“The Babice Silent Unseen – major Piotr Szewczyk”
“Places of Remembrance”
“Secret mail – how to encode a message?”
“Legendary stories from the Land of Oświęcim”
“In the footsteps of the monuments of the land of Oświęcim”
“Powerful help – the value of helping others”.
The full list can be found on the educational portal:
“The workshops and museum lessons organized by our museum are tailored to the needs of people with special needs. We are also open to cooperation and suggestions from teachers and therapists. We take into account the degree and type of disability when conducting classes,” emphasize the museum educators.
Many of the workshop participants visit the multimedia permanent exhibition while attending the museum. Other museum visitors take advantage of the opportunity to order a free screening of the film “Courier Girl” on a date of their choice for groups of more than 15 people. The English version of the film can be reserved on request.
