Here is the moment you have all been waiting for! The announcement of what FYFT's next step is  going to be!

The plan is create an online educators portal which will feature our 30 minute documentary, other film footage including the entire testimonies of seven Holocaust survivors. Alongside this film footage we will feature lesson plans that we will write. These lesson plans will focus on issues and questions asked during the documentary and expand on them further.

We have spoken with teachers in Scotland and aim to pilot the documentary and lesson plans within the next few months. We believe that the messages that we have focussed on will really resonate with young people and help them understand the role that they play in the story of prejudice!

We have started seeking funding through an amazing website called Indiegogo:


Thank you!

So, we know that we have been VERY quiet on the ol' blog front recently so (once again) massive apologies for that.

We have been working tirelessly since we got back from London to really develop and build FYFT, and we have had some very interesting meetings, but before we get to all this, we would like to tell you a little bit about what happened in London!

We were lucky enough to meet with representatives from: Holocaust Educational Trust (
, Holocaust Memorial Day Trust (, Keshet (, Jhub (, The Anne Frank Trust ( and the London Jewish Cultural Centre ( Each meeting was really positive and everyone that we met with was really impressed with the documentary and our progress so far. The London Jewish Cultural Centre is so enthusiastic about what we are doing, that they asked if they could show the documentary on December 6th!

Since we got back from London, we have been working on the documentary which we are pleased to say that it is almost completed. Editing the documentary has been an incredibly long process and we are not unhappy that it is almost at it's end, but it definitely has been a labour of love and we are incredibly proud of what we have achieved. We are very lucky to have an extremely talented young musician writing a piece of orignal music for the documentary. It is support like that, that has been all this possible. We will be showing the documentary in Glasgow at the end of October, so stay tuned for mor details!

We have also been in touch with Limmud ( who also want us to show the film and have a Q&A with the audience. They are also interested in having us on a panel with other Holocaust educators to have discussions. It is all so amazing and definitely a bit crazy.

We are working on the next stage for FYFT and we know that we have some incredible ideas of where we can take this project. We will be making an announcement about this in the next few months.

Once again, we want to thank everyone who has supported us. This project has been an amazing ride and we know that we couldn't continue it without every single one of you wishing us well.
