GUIDELINES FOR EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMMES
The educational programmes at the Documentation Centre, especially with school classes and youth groups, ar based on methodological guidelines for historical learning.
Relation to the Living Environment
Our educational programmes do not address forced migration as an abstract historical event, but consciously links it to the everyday lives of young people and adults today.
The educational formats encourage people to deal with the history of displacement, expulsion and forced migration as independently as possible. They provide space for impulses, discussions and controversies.
Making Perspectives visible
We point out different national, political and social perspectives. In the programmes, the participants deal with controversial points of view and the respective argumentations.
Self-reflection of the Documentation Centre
Exhibitions, like films, literature or monuments, influence our historical culture. Self-reflection as an institution of remembrance culture with controversial history is therefore part of the educational work.
Telling about People
Behind almost every object are personal stories and fates of individual people affected by forced migration. These narratives are at the centre of the educational programmes.
