HOLOCAUST – IS THAT WALLPAPER PASTE?
direction: Mumin Shakirov
The Karatygin sisters received what many young people dream about – to become famous. This is why they came to participate in a MUZ-TV programme “The Utterly Stunning”. This quiz show usually does not cover topics one would have during exams and unexpectedly the girls were asked what the word “Holocaust” meant. The girls replied that it was some glue for wall paper. This episode of the show received an enormous number of clicks on YouTube and raised a lot of questions about the education in Russia and about the girls themselves. After meeting the girls the author of the film got an idea to arrange a trip for them to Auschwitz in Poland.
