Earthquake Turkey and Syria: Solidarity with the survivors.

Our thoughts are with the survivors of the earthquake in Turkey and Syria. The HRRFB team shares their deepest solidarity with the victims and their relatives, and with all the volunteers and aid workers who are doing their best to provide assistance to the victims as quickly and effectively as possible. As President Frank-Walter Steinmeier put it at a memorial event on Monday: “What we need now is enduring solidarity. Our humanity remains in demand, even when the images from the earthquake zone have long since been replaced by other news.”

Raise your hand for education!

We at the Human Rights Film Festival Berlin support the ECHO campaign #EducationNoMatterWhat – as we firmly believe that everyone has the right to education! Going to school is a fundamental right, but for some vulnerable children, education is a challenge. During the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of children and youngsters worldwide experienced what it means not to have access to school. They missed their friends and teachers. Their education often suffered. Once the restrictions were lifted, they were happy to return as soon as schools opened.

We believe knowledge is power and therefore support the campaign #EducationNoMatterWhat.

You would also like to raise your voice for the fundamental right to education? Then post a video of yourself on social media with your hand raised. Use this filter on your mobile to make the message even more powerful – and post it with the hashtag #EducationNoMatterWhat.
