(ANSA) - PESCARA, JANUARY 27 - "History is not studying from page 1 to page 5, but digging, understanding, growing".
"For the first time we have understood that the war studied in this way brings you closer to our reality: in short, it was a strong life experience, which taught us how we believed distant experiences are in reality still among us".
These are just two of the comments made publicly by the students of the "Luigi di Savoia" State Industrial Technical Institute in Chieti involved in the project "Let's project the story of stumbling blocks onto the walls".
Aula magna full for the projection of the video made by the same students in which they told the stories of Aldo Oberdorfer, professor who taught in Chieti and who was deported to Lanciano (Chieti), of the Marshal of the Carabinieri Camillo Neviani, who rescued 'many Jews and helped' two of them to marry despite deportation, the declaration of Chieti as an "open city" and the story of the partisans of the Banda Palombaro shot in Bussi (Pescara).
Full didactic success of the initiative, therefore, as also reported by the teacher Antonella Aceto, who explains that "it was not easy to elaborate the project, especially at the beginning when we were all in dad: the children needed to be stimulated, motivated. something magical happened: as soon as we were able to see each other, an empathy was triggered, a need to rediscover our history, even in Chieti. The boys in the end were enthusiastic, they entered the life of the history of the Shoah and the Second World War ".
