Since November 2014 15 pupils from Fritz-Schumacher-Schule in Hamburg are engaged with the history of the crime at Bullenhuser Damm during the Nazi Regime.
The school is associated for several years with the museum at Bullenhuser Damm and therefore we are glad to participate at the youth exchange project in April.
After an introduction to the history of the crime the pupils developed own questions and chose their research subjects autonomously.
A groups of four boys is concerned with selected perpetrators, two girls are researching on the medical experiments on 20 children. A further group of two boys has decided to work on the living conditions of the children in the barrack in the concentration camp Neuengamme.
Furthermore the other pupils will interview some Hamburg residents to find out how the remembrance of the crime is maintained in Hamburg. Special highlights will be interviews with the mayor of Hamburg, Olaf Scholz, and the Hamburg Secretary of Education, Ties Rabe.
We are looking forward to present our results and to the presentations of the other groups.
