Creative student proves homework doesn’t have to be boring after making it out of Lego
A creative student has proved that homework doesn’t have to be boring after making it out of Lego.
Captured in a series of inventive images, talented teenager, John Denno, 16, managed to use the plastic bricks to re-create the historical timeline of the Holocaust.
Fearing his lack of drawing skills would let him down, John, from Liverpool, decided to use Lego to show his history teacher his newly gained knowledge in a whole new way.
Built using a variety of Lego pieces and figurines, John was able to document such events as Hitler’s rise to power in 1933, his later suicide in 1945 and the even the liberation of concentration camps at the end of World War II.
The impressive pictures took the school boy, now in year 11, around six hours to build and photograph and naturally he received an A for his efforts.
Since posting the images online, John’s pictures have gone viral with many people praising his imagination.
John said: “I’m not all that great at drawing, so I decided to do it in Lego instead.
“I’ve been building stuff with Lego for as long as I can remember and I’ve been part of the Lego online communities for about five years.
“The project was to make something that will help us remember the Holocaust.
“Some of the scenes were very quick to complete, namely the Stalin and Hitler pictures, but others, such as the liberation of the concentration camps, took much longer because there’s a lot more to them.
“I learned that the persecution went on for so long, before this I didn’t realise the sheer length of what the Nazi’s did.”
