“Volu­metric tes­ti­mo­ny of Holo­caust sur­vi­vors” 2023

The pro­ject “Volu­metric Tes­ti­mo­ny of Holo­caust Sur­vi­vors,” fun­ded by the Bran­den­burg Minis­try of for Eco­no­mic Affairs, Labour and Ener­gy, will con­ti­nue this year with the Babels­berg KON­RAD WOLF Film Uni­ver­si­ty and the Bran­den­burg Socie­ty for Cul­tu­re and Histo­ry as a vir­tu­al encoun­ter. In Decem­ber 2022, the last eye­wit­ness Alo­dia Wit­aszek-Napier­ała was inter­view­ed as part of the pro­ject by direc­tor Chris­ti­an Zip­fel and recor­ded by 36 cameras. 

In 2023 the pro­ject will be con­ti­nued as a vir­tu­al encoun­ter with the tit­le “In Echt? -“In Echt? – Vir­tu­el­le Begeg­nung mit NS-Zeitzeug*innen“. The volu­metric inter­views with con­tem­pora­ry wit­nes­ses will be used to test and pre­sent the pos­si­ble app­li­ca­ti­ons, oppor­tu­nities and chal­len­ges of the tech­no­lo­gy in the field of histo­ry edu­ca­ti­on in and out of school. Selec­ted inter­view seg­ments will be inte­gra­ted into an inter­ac­ti­ve VR app­li­ca­ti­on. The app­li­ca­ti­on will be shown at theHouse of Bran­den­burg-Prus­si­an Histo­ry (HBPG)and on tour with a mobi­le remem­bran­ce room at various loca­ti­ons in the sta­te of Bran­den­burg and will be tes­ted, dis­cus­sed and fur­ther deve­lo­ped with dif­fe­rent tar­get groups. 

The coope­ra­ti­on bet­ween Volu­cap and the uni­ver­si­ty deve­lo­ped wit­hin the frame­work of the trans­fer stra­te­gy of the sta­te of Bran­den­burg and was coor­di­na­ted by the Know­ledge and Tech­no­lo­gy Trans­fer of the Babels­berg Film University. 

We are plea­sed that this important pro­ject can con­ti­nue and develop.
