Visit of Pratt family

July 2012

In July 2012 high-school students from Głowno who participated in the School of Dialogue workshops in spring that year, had a unique opportunity to meet with the descendants of Jews from their town. They hosted the Pratt family from Australia in their school and gave them a tour of Jewish sites of their town, including what was most probably family house of their ancestors. For most students it was their first contact with present-day Jewish community. Their guests were under a great impression of the knowledge and involvement of young people in commemorating the pre-war Jewish history of their hometown.
