Project Learning from the Past
EUTIS, o.p.s. in cooperation with Political Prisoners.eu, BBAG (Postupim) and Karl Arnold Stiftung (Cologne) are preparing a new educational project focused on methods of transferring knowledge about modern history. Thanks to the project supported by the Erasmus+ programme, we will train a group of Czech and German youth workers and civic education or history teachers in effective and attractive methods in teaching about the tragic events of the 20th century and the circumstances that led to the creation of totalitarian regimes. The project will consist of two international seminars to be held in Potsdam (Germany) and Jáchymov (Czech Republic) in the spring of 2019. Under the guidance of experienced experts, participants from the Czech Republic and Germany will be able to gain hands-on experience with specific methods of working with youth directly in places of memory. They will discuss and share insights from their own practice, thus improving their competencies and gaining new inspiration for their own educational activities. In addition, the participants will take part in the creation of an innovative handbook - a guide to teaching about places of memory associated with the totalitarian past. It will be available both in print and on-line in Czech, German and English to the project participants as well as other youth workers and the broad public.
Soon you can look forward to more detailed information and instructions about how to apply for participation in the project.
