New funding programme for remembrance of forced labour and forgotten victims - remembrance of national socialist injustice - Foundation EVZ

The extent to which societies come to terms with forced labour under National Socialism still varies widely in Europe. Moreover, in Germany and in the countries occupied by the National Socialist regime or their successor states, there are still groups of victims of National Socialist injustice who do not yet have any appropriate place in the respective culture of remembrance. These are frequently described in Germany by the term “forgotten” victims of National Socialism.

The programme funds
  • primarily international projects with participation of German partners that explore forced labour under National Socialism in exhibitions, documentations, film documentaries and other formats and contribute to anchoring the subject permanently in the European culture of remembrance. → detailed call for application
  • international conferences that deal in a cross-over context with the subject of forced labour under National Socialism → detailed call for application
  • primarily international projects with participation of German partners dedicated to remembrance of “forgotten” victim groups of National Socialism. In the years 2014 and 2015 projects in remembrance of the victims of National Socialist “euthanasia” and the fate of the Soviet prisoners of war will primarily be funded. →detailed call for application 
With this programme the Foundation EVZ is supporting projects that pursue a multi-perspective approach and thus contribute to developing a European understanding of history.
