With this workshop, the participants conduct their own research on a fallen soldier during the Battle of Passchendaele. Starting with a picture, a name and date they reconstruct what happened on the fatal day to ‘their’ soldier.
This workshop is based on our project ‘Passchendaele Archives’. With this project we aim at adding a face and a story to those who gave their lives during the Battle of Passchendaele. They will no longer only will be a name on the wall of the missing or on a headstone, but shall have their own locatable spot in the landscape.
Optionally, participants can visit ‘their’ soldier afterwards during the (guided) visit to CWGC Tyne Cot Cemetery. There, they can take on the role of guide and report back with their information.
We offer this workshop to students (+14) and adults.
