Europe 14-14 | HistoryCampus Berlin

From the 7th to the 11th of May 2014 the HistoryCampus took place in Berlin, as a central element of  Europe 14|14. For three days - from May 8-10 - around 400 young people from Germany and all parts of Europe worked on the topic of the First World War and its meaning for themselves, for their respective country and for today’s Europe.

The campus was organized by the German Federal Agency for Civic Education, the Körber Foundation and the Robert Bosch Stiftung, in association with the Maxim Gorki Theatre in Berlin.

With the slogan "look back, think forward" experts in the fields of international relations, history and politics as well as artists offer 22 workshops that focus on different aspects of the topic over two and a half days. Each participant will take part in one workshop and will have the opportunity to create their own piece of work or art in collaboration with other participants from all over Europe. Different workshops will offer different approaches including debate, writing and other creative and interactive media, like theatre, film or experiential games.

The HistoryCampus unraveled the questions around the meaning of the events of the First World War for our Europe today. This is to explore also our identity as well as various commemorative cultures and how different countries dealt with the memories and consequences of the war.

MitOst coordinated the application and invitation of 50 alumni of the Robert Bosch Stiftung. With the workshop "Everyday culture and war" we contributed to the variety of creative workshops.
