Discover NS history

By bike from Köpenick Old Town to Wilhelmshagen

11 June 2022 | 2 p.m. | Meeting point: Schlossplatz Altstadt Köpenick

After almost 80 years, it is easy to overlook the remaining traces of National Socialism in everyday life. That's why we should consciously take the time to discover these traces. In which places in our neighbourhood are there remnants of the Nazi dictatorship, where are there places of remembrance and where are streets named after victims of the Nazis?

On 11 June, together with the Haus der Jugend Köpenick, project beGEG(e)Nung, we invite especially young people to a bicycle tour to visit various stations of Nazi history in the district of Treptow-Köpenick and to deal with their background. On the approximately three-hour tour, everyday places will be looked at in a different way.

Registration online at:

Primarily for youths and young adults between 14 and 27 years of age.

Tour language is German.

Team qualification company history


17 - 19 June 2022
Fri: 3.00 - 6.00 p.m.
Sat + Sun: 10.00 a.m. to 4.30 p.m.

Are you a political educator? Do you have experience in the field of extracurricular historical-political education? Then we would like to invite you to the team qualification #Betriebsgeschichte!

What role did individual companies play in the National Socialist camp system? Are forced labourers remembered today in the companies and/or in the industry? If so, how do companies deal with their history?

The three-day training provides basic analyses and insights into debates on the topic of forced labour and National Socialism. In addition, methods and seminar concepts will be tested and discussed in order to work out parts of the history of their own companies and branches with trainees and interested trade union youth.

Gesa Lonnemann (youth education officer Arbeit und Leben Niedersachsen) will present her concept #Betriebsgeschichte using the examples of Rheinmetall AG and Continental AG. Based on this, we will discuss possibilities of applying the concept for the Berlin-Brandenburg region.

The seminar is offered in cooperation with Arbeit und Leben Berlin-Brandenburg and the Nazi Forced Labour Documentation Centre. Registration: Inga Steengrafe steengrafe(at) 030/ 5130 192 53

Mark Mühlhaus: Photography Workshop

The aim is to tell their own story through the examination of content and photography. The photographer Mark Mühlhaus ( has dealt intensively with the topic of Nazi commemoration politics. His images have been published, among others, in the illustrated books "Begegnungen" and "KZ Überlebende und die, die nach ihnen kommen" or in photo exhibitions such as "Im Schatten von Auschwitz" (2018/2021).

International Summer Camp

"A Staged Reading on the Subject of Nazi Forced Labour".

20 - 31 July 2022

The international summer camp takes place in cooperation with Aktion Sühnezeichen Friedensdienste. The project focuses on biographical work and the filming of a staged reading.

During the summer camp, the participants will deal with the backgrounds and life stories of the former forced labourers, as well as those of the camp leaders. By studying the interviews and other sources, the participants will gain an insight into the structures of Nazi forced labour and into individual biographies of former actors. In this way, we want to awaken interest in historical and political processes and show that history and a critical attitude also have something to do with one's own living environment.

In the practical part, the participants will learn the basics of theatre and at the end they will film a staged reading with the interviews of the former forced labourers. The staged work will be complemented by guided tours of the Nazi Forced Labour Documentation Centre and a district walk to historical sites in Berlin.
