Human Rights in the Picture develops educational materials for schools. We create programs for our younger generations to grasp different human rights issues as well as visual storytelling for change. We format the programs through screenings, workshops, debates and coming as guest speakers. Below are some examples of our work.
Every year on 15 August, we mark the official end of World War II for the Kingdom of the Netherlands and commemorate all victims of the war with Japan and the Japanese occupation of the Dutch East Indies.
Commissioned by the Dutch Embassy in Bangkok, Human Rights in the Picture made a short film and lesson plan for schoolchildren aged 15-18 about the “Death Railway” built by forced labourers in Thailand and Burma (now Myanmar). This part of history is unknown to many young people and it is important to change that.
We interviewed three grandchildren of grandparents who worked on the railway line.
