Making History Together: Rediscovering the Belarusian Jewish Story
Making History Together (MHT) is an educational programme launched in early 2021, providing the younger generation an opportunity to learn about an important piece of Jewish history that few people know of. In this programme’s inaugural year, 17 children (all aged 12-13) signed up to discover the long-hidden history of Jewish Belarus. In this session, the creator of MHT, Leo Levine, will be presenting on the various themes explored in the programme and telling you the rediscovered hidden history of the Holocaust in Belarus.

Leo LevineMaking History Together Project Coordinator
Leo is a recent Masters graduate from McGill University, having studied History. Born and raised in Austria in a Russian-speaking family, his multi-national background enabled him to connect with multiple sides of his national identity, and thanks to The Together Plan’s Youth For Youth program, he could identify with his Jewish roots in more depth. In 2019, he translated his grandfather’s book Brest of my Memory, a unique perspective of 1930s-1960s Brest. In late 2020, he built the educational program Making History Together in collaboration with Debra Brunner, providing the younger generation an opportunity to learn about the history of Jewish Belarus.
