What is the Sound in the Silence project?
Sound in the Silence is an interdisciplinary remembrance project aimed at encouraging high school students from around Europe to actively reflect on the difficult aspects of the 20th-century history with the use of artistic means.
Each edition takes place in a carefully selected location. While the pupils learn about the site's past and work on the final performance, their teachers take part in workshops on interdisciplinary ways of teaching history so as to exchange experiences with peers from different countries.
