To mark the 10th anniversary of the 7/7 London bombings, TrueTube has launched an impactful film to raise awareness of the day’s tragic events.
The film, which reached more than 1,000 Key Stage 3 & 4 students last week, provides a factual and emotional story of 7/7. It features compelling interviews with four people who share different perspectives on the attack and its aftermath, including a survivor who was in the same tube carriage as one of the bombers.
Through a number of testimonies, the film evokes the wide-ranging impact of what happened on that day in July 2005. The resource opens up a discussion around the causes and consequences, and encourages students to understand the vicious circle of terrorism.
Stuart Porter, Head of Digital at TrueTube comments, “The bombings in London on 7th July 2005 were of course extremely shocking and devastating, with a combination of personal grief and political and social impact. It goes without saying that those events have had a huge impact on British culture; however many children will have heard about 7/7, but they won’t remember that day as they were too young.
“We realise we can’t solve the challenges of radicalisation and/or Islamophobia in a ten minute video, but we can raise awareness and encourage critical thinking, underpinned by a constructive, humanist and tolerance-driven perspective on the events.”
