Basics of American assignment:
Centropa films which were presented on the Civic society classes: "Three promisses", "The survival in Sarajevo"
The first film was used for lesson plans on the theme International Humanitarion Law (Geneva conventions)
The second film about Sarajevo was used on the theme Humanitarion action. Both of the films were used in two classes, one for watching them and one for dicussion and achieving the goals. These themes are planned for 9th grade curriculums.
School performance commemorating the Holocaust victims from Macedonia on the occasion of the International Holocaust Day (Yom Hashoah) 28th of April. The performance consisted of the following acts:
1) Ballet dancing
2) Singing Jewish songs
3) Reading essays about the Holocaust (students` projects)
4) Presenting movies (also students` projects)
The show was visited by guests from the Memorial Centre of Holocaust Macedonia.
Katzenelson High School in Israel held a display for the commemoration of the Holocaust Day 2014 . The theme was 75 years to the Kindertransport. Students put the display and on the screen the Centropa film about Kurt Brodmann was played in a loop.
As of 2014, the seventh and eight grade students at the Petar Pop Arsov primary school in Skopje, Macedonia have created and curated an exhibition they have made using Centropa resources and their own research. They worked on this exhibition for few months and created 9 panels about the history, religion and tradition of the Sephardic Jews in Macedonia. This project was part of a community event – the commemoration of the deportation of the Jews from Macedonia, on 11 March 1943.
In November, 2012 I participated in Centropa seminar in Vilnius. One of the films we watched there was Haya Lea Detinko life story. The film was in Russian with English subtitles. As a teacher of English I started to cherish an idea about using this film in the lessons of foreign languages. (English and Russian are the foreign languages taught at our school)

With the visit of the museum I came back years and centuries in the past.I could feel that time in the past,that sometimes made me cry.It’s really nice that we have places like this where you can save memories which will remember you every day,that will use to the next generations.
