Group B will create alike in the city of Esch-sur-Alzette. Participants will capture on camera current appearance of buildings and locations associated with Jewish heritage for later comparisons with original photos. The training’s second part offers skills about making a video interview with contemporary Luxembourgish Jewish narrators. Students will learn how to create a short but comprehensive interview right in the streets where they will ask potential Jewish narrators about their memories of specific locations associated with the Luxembourgish Jewish community.

After the training, the participants will collect, edit and upload relevant materials that result in the practical output in the form of the interactive online tour within the phone application (IWalk).
