The Journey
Posted by Kevin Hicks on 27th May 2012

History Squad are about to embark on another co-production with award winning production company Blue Hippo Media to produce a film called “The Journey”.  Written by Kevin Hicks, the film is for use in the educational arena, which will promote themes around identity, nationality and community using the subject of the Holocaust. With historical accuracy we will be watching the lives of an ordinary German Jewish family unfold, causing us to identify and empathise with the characters. The film will show how a civilized society can be turned on its head and then on itself, by negatively focussing on a minority.  A full teaching package will accompany the resource which will also give students something to do rather than just watch.  We are currently trying to raise the final bit of funding so that we can start filming in August, if you can help in any way, please get in touch.
