VR Movie: Rose Garden for the Children of Bullenhuser Damm

The Nazis conducted medical experiments on captive children, treating them as animals. Twenty children, ten boys and ten girls, were infected with tuberculosis and then had their lymph glands removed from under both arms. At the end of the experiment, the children were taken to the school on Bullenhuser Damn and hanged in the basement, along with their caregivers. The school has since been renamed the Janusz Korczak School after the head of the Jewish orphanage in Warsaw, and a memorial rose garden has been planted behind the school. On a wall surrounding a part of the garden are the names and photographs of the murdered children. Note: For the purposes of this VR, the two ends of the wall have been joined together photographically to make it easier to rotate the VR.
