JANUARY - MARCH 2016 ~ EXHIBITION & EVENT SERIES: LIFE AFTER SURVIVAL – HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS AND THEIR FAMILIES IN ISRAEL

Holocaust survivors were liberated over 70 years ago, yet their lives are still marked by severe trauma. Life after survival – what does it entail for affected individuals and their families? On behalf of the Israeli organization AMCHA and with financial support from the Foundation EVZ, the photographer Helena Schätzle has accompanied and portrayed Holocaust survivors and their families in Israel. The resulting pictures and quotations show the emotional traces of a still influential past. The exhibition of Helena Schätzle’s pictures is on view in the atrium of the German Federal Foreign Office until 9 March 2016, accompanied by an event series. Designed as a travelling exhibition, the pictures will subsequently be displayed in other locations in Germany.

UPCOMING EVENTS

9 MARCH 2016 ~ EVENT SERIES “TRANSITIONAL JUSTICE”: COMPENSATION, EXPECTATIONS AND STANDARDS OF COLLECTIVE AND INDIVIDUAL COMPENSATION PROGRAMMES AFTER SYSTEMATIC WRONGDOING

9 MARCH 2016 ~ EVENT SERIES “TRANSITIONAL JUSTICE”: COMPENSATION, EXPECTATIONS AND STANDARDS OF COLLECTIVE AND INDIVIDUAL COMPENSATION PROGRAMMES AFTER SYSTEMATIC WRONGDOING

There are numerous compensation programmes worldwide for the victims of historical injustice. This event is dedicated to the circumstances of injustices, the victim groups and the design of compensation programmes. Are compensation payments made individually or collectively? What have been the experiences of compensation programmes from the perspective of victims, or of responsible organizations? How have the claims of compensation programmes developed historically - including under the influence of human rights? From 2001 to 2007, the Foundation EVZ made compensation payments totalling approximately EUR 4.4 billion to 1.66 million former forced labourers. It has thus been a compensation actor itself. The event series “Transitional Justice. Instruments – Experiences – Challenge” is a cooperation arrangement between the Federal Foundation for the Reconciliation of the SED Dictatorship, the German Institute for Human Rights (DIMR) and the Foundation EVZ.

9 & 10 MARCH 2016 ~ THEATRE: ÄNNE’S LAST JOURNEY

9 & 10 MARCH 2016 ~ THEATRE: ÄNNE’S LAST JOURNEY

A young woman is referred to a psychiatric clinic at the time of the National Socialist regime. The starting point for the stage drama is the documented case of Anna Lehnkering, called Änne, who was a patient in the Bedburg-Hau psychiatric hospital from 1936 to 1940 and who became a victim of "euthanasia" in Grafeneck on 7 March 1940. Showing great respect, two actors in the different roles of mother, teacher, brother and sister, neighbours, doctors and Änne herself relate her harrowing life story using documentary material and projections, right up to the time she was taken away to the extermination centre. The Foundation EVZ is funding presentations of the drama in Germany.

16 MARCH 2016 ~ PANEL DISCUSSION: CAUGHT UP IN THE WAR AGAIN

16 MARCH 2016 ~ PANEL DISCUSSION: CAUGHT UP IN THE WAR AGAIN

Since the Russian annexation of Crimea and the outbreak of war in eastern Ukraine, almost two million people have fled their homes. In January 2016, UNHCR counted at least 800,000 IDPs alone in the region controlled by the Ukrainian government. They suffer from a war-related economic crises and the collapse of supply systems. Of particular concern is the situation of the elderly. Ljudmila Kotscherschina (project leader and survivor of National Socialism from Dnipropetrovsk), Anton Plaksun (project leader who fled from Crimea), and Pawel Scharun (former Dachau inmate and project participant from Sloviansk) speak on the panel about their experiences, the current situation, and possibilities for supporting Nazi victims who are affected by the hostilities in eastern Ukraine. The project is funded within the programme “Partnerships for victims of National Socialism”.

APRIL 2016 ~ THEATRE: “VERSCHLEPPT JUNG OHNE ICH” (ABDUCTED YOUNG WITHOUT ME) – A THEATRE PERFORMANCE AT THE SITE OF THE FORMER CONCENTRATION CAMP RAVENSBRÜCK IN EBERSWALDE

The Eisenspalterei was a subcamp of the Ravensbrück concentration camp. 800 women from Poland, Italy and other countries were humiliated and exploited here under the Nazi regime. Today German and Polish young people explore the historical site with drama instructors. Survival reports from former Polish forced labourers serve as a source for their work. The result is a theatrical performance: they inspect the site together with the audience, and portray moments of terror as well as the will to survive.
Dates:

18 APRIL 2016 ~ EVENT SERIES “TRANSITIONAL JUSTICE”: ARCHIVES AS ACTORS OF HISTORICAL REAPPRAISAL

18 APRIL 2016 ~ EVENT SERIES “TRANSITIONAL JUSTICE”: ARCHIVES AS ACTORS OF HISTORICAL REAPPRAISAL

Archives play an important role not only for historical research; they can also contribute to processes of historical reappraisal as key witnesses to identify and convict perpetrators of serious human rights violations. For victims of state-sponsored violence, whether they are believed and rehabilitated often depends upon the transmission of archival materials. With the comprehensive opening of the archive of the SED Dictatorship on 3 October 1990, the Federal Republic set an important precedent. Overnight, nearly all documents became accessible for research, media and affected persons. In particular, the opening of the records of the secret police and the vetting of people in public service positions are regarded as exemplary.

18 APRIL 2016, 18:30 ~ BOOK PRESENTATION: DESCENDANTS OF THOSE PERSECUTED UNDER NATIONAL SOCIALISM

Taking place at the Cologne Public Library, the German Association for Information and Advice for Victims of Nazi Persecution presents a collection of articles from its conference on “Descendants of those Persecuted under National Socialism,” which took place in June 2015 in Berlin. The conference offered more than twenty researchers the opportunity to participate in workshops on the topics of social work, psychology and societal participation. The publication, as well as the underlying conference, is the first to focus on the topic of the descendants of those persecuted under National Socialism from the perspective of different victim groups. The event takes place in cooperation with Germania Judaica – Cologne Library of German-Jewish Life. Location: Cologne Public Library, Josef-Haubrich-Hof 1, 50676 Cologne

20 APRIL 2016 ~ EXHIBITION OPENING: PATHS OF DISCRIMINATION: THE HISTORY OF SINTI AND ROMA IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC

20 APRIL 2016 ~ EXHIBITION OPENING: PATHS OF DISCRIMINATION: THE HISTORY OF SINTI AND ROMA IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC

“This project helped me to open my eyes and pay attention to prejudices – not just against Sinti and Roma,” František Hartl, participant in the project “Paths of Discrimiantion”.
Many prejudices survive in Czech and German minds. This was the starting thesis of a student project by a Czech and a German high school. The young people worked together on the history of Sinti and Roma in both countries. They tried to clarify, for example, why Sinti and Roma experience discrimination – during World War II and today.
The young people met in both countries and learned about the history of discrimination against minorities through lectures, workshops, discussions and research projects. They also questioned their own prejudices. They summarized their findings in a travelling exhibition that will open in Berlin on April 20th, following stops in Ostrov and Schwabmünchen. The exhibition was produced in cooperation with Antikomplex z.s., and can be viewed in the foyer of the Foundation EVZ until June 20th.

26 APRIL 2016 ~ SYMPOSIUM: VIOLENCE PREVENTION AND VICTIM PROTECTION – PERPETRATOR-VICTIM CONSTELLATIONS IN ELDERLY CARE

26 APRIL 2016 ~ SYMPOSIUM: VIOLENCE PREVENTION AND VICTIM PROTECTION – PERPETRATOR-VICTIM CONSTELLATIONS IN ELDERLY CARE

The people who are cared for in German elderly care facilities today mostly belong to the generation that survived the Second World War and the Nazi regime. Former victims of Nazi persecution meet former supporters or even Nazi perpetrators. Frequently, former victims of Nazi persecution are re-traumatized by former perpetrators or supporters. The staff of elderly care facilities are often overwhelmed by these situations, leaving the victims to themselves. In a year-long project, the Institute for Social Innovation (ISI) and the German Association for Information and Advice for Victims of Nazi Persecution examined these Perpetrator-Victim constellations in elderly care facilities and developed guidance and practical assistance for elderly care staff on violence prevention and victim protection. The results of the project will now be presented at a one-day symposium in Duisburg.

10 MAI 2016 ~ EXHIBITION OPENING: NAZI FORCED LABOR

10 MAI 2016 ~ EXHIBITION OPENING: NAZI FORCED LABOR

More than 20 million men, women and children from almost all countries in Europe were deported to Nazi Germany as “foreign workers”, prisoners of war and concentration camp inmates, or they worked as forced labourers in German-occupied territory. Forced labourers were certainly part of everyday life in Nazi Germany from at least 1942 onwards. The deportees, most of them from countries in the east, were deployed everywhere: in armaments factories, on building sites, in agriculture, in manual trades, public institutions and private households. All Germans – whether soldiers in the occupying forces in Poland or farmers in Thuringia – came into contact with forced labourers, and many profited from them. Forced labour was no secret; it was a crime largely open to public view. The international travelling exhibition, organised by the Buchenwald and Mittelbau-Dora Memorials Foundation, was initiated and supported by the Foundation EVZ. Location: Museum of Labour Steyr, Austria

11 MAY 2016 ~ EVENT SERIES “TRANSITIONAL JUSTICE”: NEVER AGAIN! A FRAMEWORK FOR GUARANTEES OF NON-RECURRENCE

One of the central functions of transitional justice is to prevent mass human rights violations in the future. Therefore, in 2015 the special rapporteurs of the UN Human Rights Council and General Assembly considered which elements should comprise a comprehensive transitional justice strategy. These range from reforms to criminal law and constitutions to reforms to judicial systems and security sectors, and improvements in the conditions for civil society participation.

12 MAI 2016 ~ PROGRAMME PRESENTATION: FUNDING PROJECTS AGAINST DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF SEXUAL ORIENTATION AND GENDER IDENTITY

12 MAI 2016 ~ PROGRAMME PRESENTATION: FUNDING PROJECTS AGAINST DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF SEXUAL ORIENTATION AND GENDER IDENTITY

Thousands of people designated as “gay” were persecuted under National Socialism. Today, lesbians, gays, bisexuals as well as transgender or intersexual people (LGBTI) enjoy universal human rights protections. However, the implementation of these rights remains disputed in many places. Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity remains widespread in all European countries. Since 2015, the Foundation EVZ has combined its activities for the human rights of LGBTI people into a new funding programme. The programme and its first projects in the Ukraine, Russia, Lithuania and Germany will be presented at this event.

EXHIBITION: “BRAUNSCHWEIG – ŁODŹ 1939. TWO CITIES AT THE START OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR”. ON VIEW IN THE FOYER OF THE FOUNDATION EVZ UNTIL 7 MARCH 2016

On 21 January 2016, the exhibition “Braunschweig – Łodź 1939. Two Cities at the Start of the Second World War” opened in the foyer of the Foundation EVZ. First, the project leaders, the German instructor and his Polish colleague, explained the origins of the project idea and the integration of the project into the students’ respective schooldays. At the Gymnasium Neue Oberschule in Braunschweig, the project was worked into a regular foundational history course for the 11th grade.
The participating students gave short tours in German and Polish through the comprehensive exhibition, which depicts the development of both cities after 1939. The project and exhibition were awarded the 2015 Sally Perel Prize for Respect and Tolerance by the VW plant in Braunschweig. Sally Perel survived National Socialism as “Hitler Youth Salomon” (also known through the autobiography and film adaptation) by posing as an “ethnic German” and attending the “Akademie für Jugendführung” in Braunschweig – an educational facility for the training of future leaders for the Hitler Youth. His family moved to Łódź in 1938.

ARCHIVE WORKSHOPS AT THE JEWISH MUSEUM BERLIN 2016

ARCHIVE WORKSHOPS AT THE JEWISH MUSEUM BERLIN 2016

“Even the most powerful interventions are no substitute for an eyewitness discussion.” This statement from a project funded in the programme “Encounters with former forced labourers and other victims” gives particular appreciation to the Jewish Museum Berlin. The museum has been conducting archive workshops with Holocaust survivors for over ten years with the support of the Foundation EVZ. The workshops are aimed at students in the 9th to 13th grades, as well as university students. In the workshops, participants work with documents that have been donated to the museum. Following the group work with primary sources, there is a presentation, discussion and exchange with the present eyewitnesses. For 2016, up to 14 donors from the USA, Israel, Great Britain, Sweden and Switzerland are expected to participate. Applications are still being accepted on a rolling basis in the funding programme “Encounters with former forced labourers and other victims.”

“LEARNING WITH INTERVIEWS” – A LEARNING ENVIRONMENT WITH MEMOIRS OF FORMER FORCED LABOURERS

“LEARNING WITH INTERVIEWS” – A LEARNING ENVIRONMENT WITH MEMOIRS OF FORMER FORCED LABOURERS

Through six biographical short films showing interviews with former forced labourers, students in the 9th grade and above learn about forced labour under National Socialism. Historical photographs, documents, maps, a glossary, timelines, informational texts and background films complement the interviews. Suggested activities and worksheets as well as didactic commentaries support teachers in the use of the learning environment in the classroom. The online offerings combine the clarity of filmed eyewitness interviews with the interactivity of digital media. They promote both historical and media competencies and the active memory of Nazi forced labour and its victims. The learning environment is part of the project “Forced Labour 1939-1945: Memories and History,” and was developed at the Center for Digital Systems at the Freie Universität Berlin.

PRIZE FOR MEET UP PROJECT

PRIZE FOR MEET UP PROJECT

The project “70 Years Back in 1000 Kilometres: An Extracurricular Educational Trip from Görlitz to Ternopil at the End of World War II” won 2nd prize at the history competition of the Saxon Youth Foundation in 2015. We congratulate the winners!
12 young Ukrainians and Germans travelled 1000 kilometres from Görlitz to Ternopil. Together, they visited places of Nazi terror and met with eyewitnesses. In the process, they learned where fanaticism and intolerance can lead. This topic was particularly gripping in light of the “Pegida” events in Saxony and the armed conflict in the eastern Ukraine: the young people from Germany and Ukraine agreed that societal events can not just be viewed from a critical distance, but instead demand active behaviour and civil courage for peaceful coexistence. At the end of the trip, the young people produced an accessible history book that reflected upon their journey, discussions and results in an impressive manner, and was successfully presented in the Saxon parliament. The project was funded within the programme “Meet Up! German - Ukrainian Youth Encounters”.

EVENT SERIES “TRANSITIONAL JUSTICE”

EVENT SERIES “TRANSITIONAL JUSTICE”

The event “Commemoration, Remembrance, Education” took places at the Foundation EVZ on January 12th as part of the “Transitional Justice” series. Professor Susanne Buckley-Zistel gave the introductory lecture and explained the development of memorial sites. While initially designed in a rather authoritarian way, an increasingly pluralistic discourse developed at these sites over time with complementary memorialization and even counter narratives. Using examples from practice, Dr Irina Scherbakowa explained the relationship between dealing with historical injustice and the current state of society. Dr Clara Ramírez-Barat underlined that the only credible concepts for democratic education are participatory training methods.

COMMEMORATION OF THE VICTIMS OF NATIONAL SOCIALISM

COMMEMORATION OF THE VICTIMS OF NATIONAL SOCIALISM

The Day of Remembrance for Victims of National Socialism was focused this year on the topic of Nazi forced labour. The Foundation EVZ invited two former forced labourers to Berlin. In front of 80 young people from 11 countries, Gabriela Turant from Łodź spoke about her forced labour in Berlin and Ulm. Anastasiia Gulei from Kiev remembered her deportation to Chorzów, her escape and subsequent imprisonment in Auschwitz. Both took part in the commemoration service of the German Parliament on January 27th. On the same day, Dr Michael Jansen opened the exhibition “Forced Labour in Rural Areas” at the Paul-Löbe-Haus in Berlin.

Providing care for Holocaust survivors requires professional and volunteer caregivers as well as family members to have skills and knowledge about the long-term consequences of trauma, and the risks of the transmission of trauma. At a conference of the Central Welfare Council of Jews in Germany (ZWST) in November 2014, international trauma experts discussed, for the fifth time, how to improve care for Holocaust survivors, and how to protect caregivers from secondary traumatization. The presentations were summarized in a conference documentation that is available for order from the ZWST or for download as a PDF on the ZWST website.
