Targeted historical and political disinformation, the increase in xenophobic attacks online and offline, and the decline
in historical factual knowledge about the history of National Socialism. The challenges are great - we are tackling them with the Agenda for the Future.
The mission of the EVZ Foundation is to keep the memory of National Socialist persecution alive, to accept responsibility in the here and now, and to actively shape it for the future and for subsequent generations.
The EVZ Foundation
Against the background of its founding history, the EVZ Foundation is particularly active in Central and Eastern Europe, Israel and Germany.
The decisive factors for the Foundation's work are the Foundation Act and the Statutes.
Our overarching goal is to strengthen the impact of the Foundation’s work and anchor its messages more firmly in society. With this objective in mind, we are continuing to develop our funding activities and flanking them with targeted activities as well as topic-centered communication.
In addition to the Foundation’s substantive impact goals, there are also goals in terms of organization: The Foundation is positioning itself to be sensitive to diversity and discrimination, viable for the future, digitalized, able to raise third-party funds, efficient, and partnershipbased and participatory.
The EVZ Foundation is oriented to the working definition of antisemitism and the working definition of antigypsyism/anti-Roma discrimination of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA).
The fields of activity EDUCATION and ACTION and their clusters bundle the previous work of the Foundation and translate it into a forward-looking, activating funding program. A virtual EVZ Academy expanded completes the strategic reconfiguration of the Foundation: learning, meeting and networking in virtual space.
