Module 1: Research

Tenth graders from the victim’s hometowns focus on one child’s biography and the crime. They receive informa­tion material translated into English concerning the biography, historical information and footage from the Neuengamme Memorial. In each town, the pupils research independently in what way the victims are still commemorated today (for example if a place is named after a murdered child). They also search for places that are still connected to the children, like their former houses, schools or ghettos. They may also contact relatives  and do research in local archives. All pupils engage with the project and have to deal with the Nazi past of their town. What does history have to do with me today? What do I know about the history of the Jewish Community in my hometown? German pupils have the task of researching the post-history of the crime. How were the children identified? How were the relatives approached and what’s the memorial’s own history?
