FUNDING PROGRAMME FOR REMEMBRANCE OF FORCED LABOUR AND FORGOTTEN VICTIMS – REMEMBRANCE OF NATIONAL SOCIALIST INJUSTICE
The extent to which societies come to terms with forced labour under National Socialism still varies widely in Europe. Moreover, in Germany and in the countries occupied by the National Socialist regime or their successor states, there are still groups of victims of National Socialist injustice who do not yet have any appropriate place in the respective culture of remembrance. These are frequently described in Germany by the term “forgotten” victims of National Socialism.
With this programme we are supporting projects and conferences that pursue a multi-perspective approach and thus contribute to developing a common understanding of history in Europe.
The programme funds:
1. International projects that explore forced labour under National Socialism and the history of forgotten groups of victims and contribute to anchoring the subjects permanently in the European cultures of remembrance.
2. International conferences that– in the wider context – address the theme of:
a) Forced labour under National Socialism, or
b) "Forgotten victim groups under National Socialism"
Who can be funded?
Educational facilities, museums, memorial sites, archives, civil society initiatives, non-profit organisations, history workshops etc. can submit proposals for projects.
