The project seeks to uncover forgotten historical places, explore memories that have not yet been told about the National Socialist regime’s injustices and atrocities and its impact on today. It will focus on Antisemitism, racism, discrimination of and hatred towards the LGBTIQ community in Europe in order to advance an inclusive and diverse culture of remembrance.
The project includes study trips in Europe, a European Fellowship in Berlin and Amsterdam, a Networking Conference in Berlin and History Teacher Trainings in Poland. We focus on young Europeans who are civically active and engaged in shaping our societies and are eager to explore the past to learn for the future. The main project locations are Amsterdam, Berlin, Krakow and Auschwitz. The formats range from a video and audio campaign to European dialogue to developing teaching material for history classes in Germany and Poland.
