It does not have to be war for that

An educational project about the February-strike of 1941 for classes 7 and 8 of the Dutch primary school educational system. 

Mien ten Dam-Poters, a participant of the February-strike, tells her story. Her story is juxta-positioned with present-day ‘small’ examples of injustice and solidarity in schools and on the streets. True stories on exclusion, street violence, digital bullying and discrimination, show how important, but also how complicated, solidarity for others can be.
