The Foundation EVZ aims to anchor the history of forced labour under National Socialism in the German and European culture of remembrance. The victims are given a voice and their experiences of National Socialism are preserved for future generations. The Foundation is also helping develop a culture of remembrance for the German migration society. It is channelling the lessons learned from experiences of violence in the 20th century into the international debate. The Foundation is also raising awareness of the Jewish contribution to German and European history.
