In many countries Auschwitz is the symbol of Nazi crimes - also in Germany, Poland and Ukraine. However, the narratives and discourses about Auschwitz in these three countries differ.
Participants of this seminar will have the chance to visit the Auschwitz Memorial several times to get to know the history of Auschwitz and the Holocaust in detail and from different perspectives. In discussions and workshops we will try to understand the different perceptions of history. During the seminar special attention will be paid to the situation of occupation in Poland and Ukraine and the persecution and extermination of European Jews.
