Offers for schools

„I think you need a lot of courage to come back and talk about the past“ (A student after meeting a time witness)

“Projekt Jüdisches Leben in Frankfurt am Main. Spurensuche – Begegnung – Erinnerung e.V.“ is active in various fields.

Above all, we bring together time witnesses and students from Frankfurt schools. Of course, the visitors program for former Frankfurt Citizens and their descendants is the most important aspect of our efforts.

We offer training courses and advise schools how to prepare meetings with time witnesses in classes and how to present the history of the Nazi-period

We prepare teaching material for history lessons on the Holocaust including didactical recommendations and handouts

We keep an archive of all the interviews and recordings as well as further activities and publish the results (e.g. “Unsere Wurzeln sind hier in Frankfurt”)
