SUMMARY OF THE PROJECT
“Entangled History as a perspective for non-formal education” is a series of events consisting
of a training for youth workers (03.-08.07.2017) and an international youth meeting (January
2018). During the training 18 youth workers from Germany, Poland and Ukraine will meet in
order to develop and modify methods for the historical and civic non-formal education viewed
in the context of a growing diversity in our societies. Due to globalization and migration our
societies in Europe become more and more diverse. The field of non-formal education must
take this challenge and needs to integrate this diversity into its project formats. Old narratives

The Holocaust as a focal point will be examined from multiple perspectives which will allow to
draw conclusions on marginalized groups and discrimination in our current societies. Further
goals of the project are the promotion of tolerance, giving an impulse to critical thinking as
well as raising awareness towards diversity and against discrimination.
During the training participants develop and modify methods that can be applied in the
following international youth meeting as well as in the every day work of the youth workers.
All methods will be published in a handbook and on a project blog.
Objective of the project is editing methods of Holocaust education in order to publish them in
the handbook that is available on a project blog. The handbook has been created in 2016 as
a result of a first training of “Entangled History”. New methods shall be added with a focus on
the topic of the Holocaust. Ideally the participants have some knowledge about methods of
non-formal education and contribute to the training by bringing in their own methods for
modification. Participants should be aware of the fact, that their participation in the training
might require some time after the training as well. Participants get the chance to write down
their methods, individually or in small groups, and to publish them in the handbook.
