Theme of cruelties and crimes against humanity committed by Fascists during the years of their rule in Europe including the years of World War II is getting more and more actual in our days as neo-Nazi organizations are getting more popular in many European countries, the Czech Republic among them.
To enlighten Czech youth on account of Holocaust atrocities One World In Schools project launched this Monday a series of documentary movies staged by prominent Czech filmmakers in cooperation with the Forum 2000 Foundation. This presentation is a part of the Stories of Lawlessness project arranged by the People in Need Society.
The director of the One World In Schools project Karel Strachota reported that this presentation is designed to get Czech schoolchildren and students more familiar with the recent pages of Czechoslovakian past. The presentation is to go along with the international conference dedicated to the victims of Holocaust that will take place starting from June 26 and up to June 30, 2009.
Mr. Strachota told the Czech News Agency journalists: "Historical events and the past have been repeatedly distorted. This applies to both the Holocaust and the post-war totalitarian period. That is why the presentation of the documentaries will be complemented by film shots from the meetings and demonstrations of the current extremist groupings. They [the shots] clearly prove that racism and anti-Semitism are no empty words."
