Students bring History to Life
'Meeting in No Man's Land' is a project devised and produced by Age Exchange, with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
In April 2016, 'Meeting in No Man's Land' brought together 24 descendents of German and British First World War soldiers, who, for 4 days, shared with each other often painful and moving family histories from the war. These stories were shown to Y9/Y10 students who were then invited to make their own videos depicting the stories they heard. They were filmed with the help of Age Exchange and the girls presented the videos at the IoE. These videos have now been put into an app, so when British school groups visit the battlefields in France and Belgium they can bring the key sites alive.
