The workshop will be held in German.
For younger descendants it is often difficult to ask their relatives about their family history during National Socialism: usually they did not get to know their relatives who had lived at that time. Often only fragments about their life stories between 1933 and 1945 are known. In narratives handed down by families the focus is often on the sufferings of relatives who were not persecuted. Nevertheless, family memories and
documents can be an initial starting point for finding out more about the past of one's own family, and thus possible perpetrators and involvement of relatives, be it in the context of Nazi forced labour or other Nazi crimes. The workshop will present research approaches as well as methods for conducting conversations with one's relatives.
