Within the framework of the essay competition you will have the opportunity to meet young Europeans from the neighboring countries Poland and the Czech Republic.

Three trinational research camps will take place during the competition, one for each country. Each research camp will be attended by 8-9 participants from Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.

They offer you the opportunity to exchange your ideas about the essay and to get to know different impressions of the resistance of women against National Socialism. Through the intercultural dialogue you will experience our European community as well as the culture of remembrance of your neighboring countries personally and directly.

In addition to practical tips on writing an essay, you will learn which female figures played a role in the resistance to National Socialism. We will prepare workshops, talks and visits to help you find your essay topic. The Research Camps also provide excellent opportunities to make new cross-border friendships.

The Research Camps are open for all interested people between 18 – 29 years. We allocate 8-9 spots per Research Camp for participants per country. Participation in the Research Camp is free of charge, accommodation and meals for the whole period will be provided by us. Please contact us for travel expenses.

Since the number of places is limited, registration is necessary.
