Work package #2: Site-specific Approaches in Holocaust Education

Partners: Terraforming, Hartheim Castle, Nordico City Museum Linz 

Work package #2 explores how visits to memorial sites, authentic historical sites and museums can include explorations of their contemporary urban/rural surroundings. Through this approach this work package wants to echo that the structural and individual violence unfolded in the midst of society. With local youth, we will try out respective educational activities at Hartheim, Linz and Sajmište/Belgrade. Based on these initial experiences, WP 2 will develop an approach which fosters a deeper understanding of the Holocaust in todays’ neighborhoods and societies. Through this participant-centered process, we aim to empower young people to develop and share their own understanding of a local yet collectively European past.
