From March 20 - April 9, 2007 the Jewish Museum Berlin addresses one of today's most brutal conflicts with a special exhibition entitled "Smallest Witnesses. The Crisis in Darfur Through Children's Eyes". The exhibition centers around drawings by children and young people from refugee camps, compiled by Human Rights Watch workers.
These drawings are disturbing, immediate documents of their experiences of the war: the Janjaweed's attacks, the bombardments, the executions and rapes and the flight to Chad.
The drawings form the point of departure for a 2 ½-hour workshop for pupils from the 9th grade up in which pupils will confront in particular the situation of children and young people in Darfur.
We will ask ourselves what responsibility young people in Germany can assume for other young people in war zones such as Darfur? And what opportunities do we have to make a small contribution toward helping them?
