THE JOINING HANDS PROJECT
THE JOINING HANDS PROJECT AN INTER-GENERATIONAL WAY OF REMEMBERING THE HOLOCAUST.
THE JOINING HANDS PROJECT is an interactive program that a) invites parents and/or grandparents and their children to hear Holocaust Survivor Leon Prochnik’s inspiring “THE BOY FROM KRAKOW & THE CHOCOLATE TUB” story, and then, b) draw their version of Leon’s life-affirming narrative – a hands-on bonding experience that honors a chapter of history that must never be forgotten.
And the experience doesn’t end there. Under the guidance of a professional art teacher, the parent’s and child’s drawings are incorporated into a pair of handsomely bound manuscripts that feature their art-work – a document to treasure and share proudly with others for the rest of their lives.
And lastly there’s the experience of hearing Leon tell his story. To revisit the Holocaust through the eyes of a child survivor is an unforgettable experience – especially if, as in Leon’s case, the survivor is a gifted storyteller whose inspiring tale will stay with you long after you have heard it and drawn your version of it.
An award-winning author, screenwriter an public speaker, Leon Prochnik is a dynamic communicator who combines a historian’s sharp memory, a storyteller’s gift for narrative and an childlike sense of wonder.
