Meeting is the new form of learning

‘War in my neighbourhood’ organises meetings between primary school pupils and local older people, to give the students a taste of the living history of their area. Students are taught how to interview their ‘neighbour’, go tot heir home to have a meeting and finally present their findings. This program has so far educated over 2000 children, giving them a local, personal look into often too-big-to-comprehend historical events.
