The work- and study-camps combine practical tasks with history education:

Work part – Volunteers will have the opportunity to work in the depot and in the archive of the memorial site. Other tasks include gardening and of maintenance work on memorial grounds.

Study part – Besides the manual work the study component will be an important part of our project. Participants will learn a lot about the time of National Socialism, ( i.e. the Nazis) - persecution extermination, and forced labour -as well as about postwar Germany, especially about the Soviet Special Camp which operated at Sachsenhausen until 1950.
Also, different remembrance and memorial cultures will be part of the study. The international volunteers with their different national and cultural backgrounds will share the memories and commemoration of their countries with the group and discuss their experiences and opinions with the group. The study part includes an art project “Young Interventions” where participants discuss different forms of remembrance, to help find their own language of remembering. In the art project, they will do brief individual art interventions on the memorial site or in the exhibitions to increase, complete, or intervene in the narratives of history.
Guided tours in and around the memorial site Sachsenhausen and excursions to different memorials and places of German history are planned.

All participants should have a very good knowledge of the English language and should be very interested in history and the present problems of neo-fascism and racism.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

Accommodation: You will be accommodated in a youth hostel, 2 km away from the memorial site.
Food: In the hostel, there is a big kitchen for the group. Volunteers have to cook the meals for themselves. You don‘t need to pay by yourself, the camp leader will get a budget for food from VJF. Ideas for cooking are welcome. Please bring anything for cooking (special spices or food) with you)

Locatie en vrije tijd

Sachsenhausen is a part of Oranienburg, ca. 33 km to the north of Berlin.

The leisure time will be decided within the group.


Important! For this project it is necessary to have good or very good English skills. German skills are beneficial.
Please prepare at home a short presentation about your country (a small contribution of about three pages), its remembrance culture and its view on German history.
Volunteers should be able to ride a bike, because various shorter and longer bicycle-tours are planned.
If you would like to be part of the work- and studycamps 2020, please send us a motivational letter.


Deadline for applications is 17.07!
