Classes between air raid alarms

Only three days after the last workshop, another group of high school students visited the Chernivtsi Museum of the History and Culture of Bukovinian Jews. This time, students from Chernivtsi Lyceum No. 8, who are intensively studying German, expressed a desire to participate in the “House of Memory” project.

The workshop organizers were especially careful in preparing for this day’s class. Firstly, the museum has a long and fruitful history of cooperation with the lyceum and, secondly, with the anniversary of the beginning of Russia’s large-scale war against Ukraine approaching, one could expect anything from the insidious and bloodthirsty regime in the Kremlin.

According to the usual procedure, we prepared a source of alternative power and checked the availability of water, first aid kits, and other essentials in the shelter where the workshop participants could hide in the event of an air raid. All these preparations were not redundant, because an hour and a half after the class started, unfortunately, the air raid siren sounded. In the afternoon, the siren wailed again, and everyone had to go down to the shelter. Luckily, both alarms did not last long, so no precious time was lost. After making some minor adjustments to the class plan, the organizers managed to accomplish all the tasks. The certificates, which the participants received at the end of the workshop, were a great end to another difficult day in the war.
