What we support

  • Forced Labour and Forgotten Victims

    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.

    Funding Program AGAINST DISCRIMINATION ON THE GROUNDS OF SEXUAL ORIENTATION AND GENDER IDENTITY

    German National Socialism persecuted homosexuals systematically. The discrimination of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender and intersexuals (LGBTI) and ideologies used to justify this have not yet been overcome. Foundation EVZ – co-funded by Dreilinden gGmbH – therefore supports activities that tackle contemporary discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation or identity. The current call for applications focuses on cooperation projects in Lithuania and Ukraine.

  • ENCOUNTERS WITH EYEWITNESSES

    Encounters with victims of National Socialism aim to enable a gesture of reconciliation and keep the memories of National Socialist injustice alive. The Foundation EVZ funds projects in which victims of National Socialism from other countries are invited to Germany and pass on their memories in encounters and eyewitness discussions.

    Facing Antisemitism and Antigypsyism

    Antisemitism and antigypsyism are jeopardising social cohesion in Europe by condoning human rights violations and stirring up hatred.They have a long and disquieting tradition. In the National Socialist era they paved the way for the murder of the European Jews and Roma. Against the backdrop of this history, the Foundation EVZ supports the systematic and long-term examination of discrimination, marginalisation and hatred practised against Roma and Jews in Europe.
