YOUNG PEOPLE remember international

The program enables young people to enter into a critical examination of history. Transnational learning at historical sites of National Socialist persecution and extermination and also matters of European culture(s) of remembrance are at the center of the program. Funding is provided for memorial sites, educational institutions and NGOs in Germany, Europe and Israel.

The funding program YOUNG PEOPLE remember international is to be financed with resources from the German Foreign Office from 2023 to 2025.

The funding lines

[re]create digital history

The funding line [re]create digital history focuses on digital formats that open up sites of remembrance and learning relating to National Socialist persecution and extermination for international civic education on a sustainable basis. With digital tools and applications, the projects further develop historical places for a low-threshold and location-independent teaching of National Socialist history in international youth exchange in a complementary way.

Immersive Learning


  • With the conference "Ctrl+Alt+Remember - Digital Remembrance today" on 19 and 20 June 2024 in Berlin, the EVZ Foundation is making the expertise gathered as part of the projects funded by YOUNG PEOPLE remember international and Education Agenda NS-Injustice accessible to an expert audience and the interested public and is linking up with current discourses. In addition to workshops and discussion rounds, the two-day programme includes playbacks of digital products funded by the EVZ and networking opportunities.

  • The international matching seminar "Set-Up Lab: Connect" helps to build contacts and networks between organisations and institutions in the field of international youth work throughout Europe and Israel.

  • In order to enable project organisers to design and develop their project ideas in a target group-oriented, innovative and multi-perspective way, YOUNG PEOPLE remember international offers the "Set-Up Lab: Design".
