Antisemitism and racism-critical historical education
Connect is a dialogical research and practice project that explores historical education in the post-migrant society. In this project, pedagogical offerings at NS-related memorial sites are evaluated by people with migration and refugee experience.
The project focuses educational offerings provided by NS-related memorial sites. Against the backdrop of a diverse post-migrant society, it raises the following key questions: How should these educational formats be designed to pursue a critical approach towards racism and antisemitism that avoids an “us versus them” dichotomy and remains equally relevant for both migrants and non-migrants? How can historical education and commemorative culture incorporate alternative narratives without deviating from established standards or promoting Holocaust relativization or Israel-related antisemitism?
To explore these questions, pedagogical offerings at NS-related memorial sites are evaluated by a group of individuals with migration and refugee experience. The evaluation focuses on the comprehensibility, accessibility, as well as the racism-critical and discrimination-sensitive approaches of these offerings. Based on the findings, a training program for multipliers will be developed, and a publication will be released that combines practical experiences with theory and reflection on approaches that critically address antisemitism and racism.
