Due to the current COVID-19 infection rate, no seminars or guided tours can take place in the Silent Heroes Memorial Center until further notice.
As an alternative, we are happy to offer online seminars. Please write to bildung(at)gedenkstaette-stille-helden.de if you would like to find out more or book an online seminar for your group. Further information is available here …
The Silent Heroes Memorial Center offers tours of the permanent exhibition free of charge for pre-registered groups of ten to thirty-five people. The tours are designed for young people 8th grade and up, for college students, and for educators or other adult groups.
Tours are based on a dual perspective in which we deal with the life stories of Jews persecuted during the Nazi period as well as with the lives of their helpers. In conversation with tour participants, various aspects of resistance to the persecution of the Jews are illuminated using specific examples. Subjects of discussion include the risks this meant for everyone involved, the living conditions of those in hiding, and the motives of those who helped.
Tours last roughly 90 minutes. When registering you can also request a specific theme that will be discussed in greater detail within the scope of the tour:
- General tour
- Networks of helpers
- In hiding in Berlin
- Assistance for children and young people
- Women in resistance against the Nazi persecution of Jews
- Helpers in uniform
Tours can be conducted in German, English, French, or plain German.
Please register for a tour at least six to eight weeks prior to the desired date via our online registration link.
