About the Programme

The German Government is funding cooperations with partner organizations from the civil society in the Eastern partnership countries and Russia. The goal is to establish permanent cooperation between civil-society actors and pursue one of the following additional goals:

  1. Strengthening pluralism
  2. Promoting the discussion of values
  3. Opening up prospects for the future
  4. Fostering dialogue and understanding

This website is run by WECHANGE (the offical project partner) and guides through the application process, connects potential partners and gives assistance in practical questions around the project management, like visa regulations, financial calculations and how to deal with bureaucratic requirements. In particular we are organizing events to bring together potential partners from time to time.

Nazi Forced Labor: History and Aftermath (Digital Winter School)

The third edition of the winter school goes digital. It will provide a forum for educators who want to exchange ideas on methods and teaching practices on the topic of Nazi forced labour and its memory in postwar Europe from a transnational perspective. The winter school will also focus on how educators can use the documents archived at the Arolsen Archives, which comprise among others multi-million page collections of records on forced labour, including the situation of Displaced Persons after liberation. Furthermore, the participants will have the opportunity to develop a teaching unit, a workshop, or a presentation in small international teams, using the material and digital tools provided by the Arolsen Archives and the Nazi Forced Labour Documentation Centre. The compiled output could be used in their own work with pupils, students or adults.
