MEMO Youth Study 2023MEMO Youth Study 2023

How, what and in what ways do young people in Germany remember National Socialism? How do they perceive discrimination and remembrance culture today? The MEMO Youth Study 2023, conducted by the University of Bielefeld and funded by EVZ Foundation, extends the previous five MEMO surveys by the focus group young adults. The study shows that National Socialism and World War II are central reference points in Germany's culture of remembrance for adolescents and young adults.

EVZ Projects: Change MakersEVZ Projects: Change Makers

Climate change and security – what do they have to do with each other? A lot, because the consequences of climate change bear a great potential for conflict on a wide variety of levels. For example, cross-border environmental problems such as extreme weather events pose challenges for the international community, exacerbating existing conflicts and creating new ones as well. At the same time, dealing with the consequences of climate change is the main task of our time and can only be achieved through constructive cooperation between all countries. Something must be done about this! You are engaged against climate change and are you interested in security policy? You are creative and like to contribute your ideas? You would like to work on a project together with young Israelis and Germans and get to know interesting institutions on these topics in Israel and Berlin?

Open Call for Experts from Germany, France, Bosnia and HerzegovinaOpen Call for Experts from Germany, France, Bosnia and Herzegovina

One of the central challenges for international youth work is to raise young people's awareness of social and political coexistence in Europe and, at the same time, to broaden their understanding of wars. To address this issue, the Franco-German Youth Office and EVZ Foundation are launching a cooperation project on "War(s) in Europe. Shared experience, collective memory? - Germany, France, Bosnia and Herzegovina", consisting of two expert meetings and a youth exchange. For details about the program and registration follow the link.

MEET UP! Remembering to ActMEET UP! Remembering to Act

"Remembering to act" is more than a title. It is a mission with which the creators of the project want to encourage young people from Germany, Georgia and Azerbaijan to become active advocates for a peaceful future by looking at the past through the prism of cultural memory and framing the current situation through non-formal educational methods. You are curious about what these methods are and how they can be used, for example, to stimulate a productive intergenerational dialogue or to develop concrete recommendations for action? Than check the website. The youth exchange will be continued in 2023.

What can we do to create diversity-conscious, sustainable and social places for young people in our cities? What are our visions for the future of urban spaces? How can young people communicate their needs and find support? As part of the "Time to Act" project, 16 young people from Germany and Moldova explored these questions. They used participatory art techniques and urban exploration tools to develop new ideas for the future of cities during their get-togethers in Chişinău, Berlin, and online. Four urban board games and various practical guides in video form offer a playful and creative approach to the results.

What happens when young German and Israeli students are meeting for a school exchange? What are their thoughts after they met and listened to the testimonies of the last survivors of the Holocaust? What are they feeling after their visit of places of extermination? How do they want to remember? This touching movie was created during the YOUNG PEOPLE remember project “Keep the memory alive!” where students met in two school exchanges in Germany and Israel in 2022. Together, they worked on a future remembrance culture for their generation with which they can identify and stand up for.

YOUNG PEOPLE remember: Ester-ToolYOUNG PEOPLE remember: Ester-Tool

By now, there is no doubt about the fact that graphic novels not only have a great entertainment factor, but they are also an ideal tool for transferring knowledge. A few weeks ago, our colleague Helge Theil was at the opening event of Terraforming in Novi Sad, Serbia, where - amongst others - the graphic novels of the project "Ester" were presented. On a very colourful graphic novel-stage, he discussed the future of Holocaust remembrance with other guests. Through "Ester" it will be possible to create your own graphic novels in the future - we are excited and will report further! Check out their website in our bio for the completed graphic novels about the Holocaust in Serbia and more information!

As a response to the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine, Educat Kollektiv have expanded their "Cultures of Remembrance" project to include essays on the war, always with a false historical reference that Putin uses to justify his war in Ukraine. The German-Ukrainian-Belarusian-Russian project was originally intended to deal with the different historical narratives in Central and Eastern Europe, and has thus responded to the current situation to declare its solidarity with Ukraine.

YOUNG PEOPLE remember: Malyj TrostenezYOUNG PEOPLE remember: Malyj Trostenez

82 years ago, on June 22, 1941, the invasion of the Soviet Union by Nazi Germany began. Under the code name "Barbarossa" this operation had been prepared for a long time, although there was a non-aggression pact between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. The aim of this operation was the subjugation, enslavement and extermination of the local population and the annexation and exploitation of the territories. After the rapid advance of the Wehrmacht, the only German extermination site on the territory of the occupied Soviet Union was established near Minsk: Malyj Trostenez. Around 60.000 people, many of them Viennese Jews, died here in just two years.
