A life story cut short by catastrophe: one Facebook story

Henio Zytomirski, a life sketched in Facebook

Can we tell stories with Facebook? One example answers in the affirmative. A Polish historical archive created a Facebook page for one Jewish boy who was born in Lublin, then killed in the Holocaust.

It’s using social media to portray a character in time, akin to storytelling through diaries.  Henio Zytomirski’s short life appears through historical photos, real and imagined voice, about page and status updates.

There are other examples of Facebook stories, but let’s not discuss them in this post.  Let the Brama Grodzka Cultural Center’s historical, personal work reverberate for now in your mind.
