We Are Silesians

Flucht nach vorn

Directing: Reinhard Lorenz


Sixty-seven years after the end of WW two, The Generations project aims at collecting the stories of people in Europe who have lived through this time, and weaving a collective story of Polish, Czech and German people – grandfathers, mothers and sons who either were involved in the war, or are descendants. The filmmaker starts with his own family, from the province of Silesia in Poland, and embarks on a journey to hear and record the stories of Polish, German and Czech people. The stories are used for a cross-media project including a documentary, a DVD, and an archive which in parts is accessible online.
There are media workshops in Poland, Czechia and Germany, where participants are encouraged to record within their own families, and submit their stories to the generations project.
