The UNIC team held a presentation at Dawid Bezuidenhoudt High School in Khomasdal, Windhoek. A band of interested history students piled in, and with the dimming of lights the presentation started with a short video “I am 70” by Secretary-General Ban-Ki Moon, who spoke about growing up in war-torn Korea, his role as Secretary-General, and his hope for the future. The video helped students understand the context of the outreach programme on the holocaust.
After the video, the movie “The Path to Nazi Genocide” and a video about a Holocaust survivor –Tom Hoffman were screened.
After the screenings, there was a question and answer session. The students were also invited to write messages to the world, the Holocaust survivors, and the families of the victims on a board. Some messages became paragraphs of condolence and love as the students had been moved by the presentation.
To remind students about the event and the dark history, the team distributed bookmarks and flyers as souvenirs.
