Looking For A Monster

Master Pupeteer Gary Friedman has been working on a Holocaust related schools educational outreach programme for the last few years, and, subject to sourcing funding, is hoping to complete the project this year. The project explores the world of Hanus Hachenburg, a child who was interned in the Theriesenstadt Concentration Camp, before being killed in Auschwitz on his 15th birthday - 12 July 1944.

While in Terezen Hanus wrote a puppet play called "We Are Looking For a Monster" and the video component of the project brings this play to life, while retracing the last two years of Hanus's short life.

For more information please visit the project's website and view the short film below.
