Remembrance

Former street children demand their right to participate. They initiate the architectural expansion of a memorial for a Nazi concentration camp.

 

Piet, Dennis and Hugo are residents of a housing project for homeless and addicted young people in Brandenburg. Together with a social worker, a historian and an architect, they plan and build a symbolic grave on the memorial site of a Nazi extermination camp near their own lodgings. After an attack on the memorial, they aim to resist prejudice and to state their own position.

 

The film observes conversations and interactions between the young people and the experts. Practical research on the history of the site results in a memorial that can be used in a participatory way. Topics such as the meaning of form, placement and gestures are being discussed. The young people create something new: they re-define commemoration for their generation on their own.
