The project "ErinnerungZeit" intends to do more than commemorate the victims of National Socialist injustice. The Berghof Foundation's animated graphic novel creates a digital, peace educational space which promotes critical historical awareness as well as media literacy among young people aged 12 to 17. The graphic novel contributes to a multi-perspective, inclusive and participatory National Socialist culture of remembrance in German-speaking countries.

The graphic novel has five narrative strands that focus on the biographies of people whose experiences and perspectives have so far received little attention in German National Socialist memory work: People who, to this day, still experience systematic exclusion, (structural) discrimination and hatred and are hardly heard in the majority society. And also people who, then as now, conscious of their privileges, seek allies in order to oppose discrimination and persecution.

By engaging in a critical examination of the National Socialist state of injustice, its consequences which continue to have an impact today, and also of various forms of resistance, young people are strengthened in their ability to act as active members of a civil society.

More about the project

Education Agenda NS-Injustice

The Magazine of the Education Agenda NS-InjusticeThe Magazine of the Education Agenda NS-Injustice

The Education Agenda NS-Injustice started in autumn 2021 with two certainties: Firstly, the survivors are passing away; there are few chances today to meet eyewitnesses who can tell us first-hand about the atrocities committed by the National Socialists. Secondly, we are increasingly entering contexts in which boundaries between fiction and fact are blurred. Under these conditions, we are dependent on new ways of learning and innovative forms of conveyance in our critical examination of National Socialist injustice and in historical-political educational work. In the magazine we present the funding program, projects and current debates.
