Work: The volunteers will work in the memorial of the former concentration camp of BUCHENWALD. You will do several jobs in the area of the memorial like cleaning, gardening and restoration in cooperation with the curators of the memorial and participate in an archaeological dig to find any artefacts relating to the prisoners. Your work will also include tending to the original remains of the former concentration camp in Buchenwald.

Study Part: We will get to know more about the time of fascism, covering the areas of racism and neo-fascism. The responsible pedagogical assistant of the memorial will show you the camp, step-by-step, through different excursions. Moreover, you will watch documentary movies, and those who would like may work with materials of the library or the archive.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

You will sleep in the Youth Centre building, situated on the area of the former concentration camp in rooms for 5 persons. Sanitary facilities including showers are available.

Locatie en vrije tijd

The freetime activities will be decided by the groups interets and wishes.

That depends of course on the group. Weimar is a student and tourist city, and has many leisure facilities. There are some possibilities to go out in Weimar, such as going to the theatre, exhibitions or to concerts. The city is famous for its museums of German cultural history, including those about the famous poets Goethe and Schiller. There are also some student clubs where we could meet other people.
There is the possibility of going on excursions to Erfurt (23km), Jena (22km) or other nearby towns (e.g. Leipzig) and going for walks in the hills Thuringian Mountains, swimming etc. In the centre, you can also use the Hi-Fi and video equipment and the volunteers can do handicrafts in the arts room. In the building, we have table tennis and table soccer.


For this Workcamp it is necessary to have very good English skills! A motivation letter -specific to this project- is required!

We ask the volunteers to make sure that their travel is compatible with the most recent recommendations of health authorities with regards to the spread of the Corona virus. In case you are travelling from or recently travelled through a higher risk area, please check the health recommendations of the country where the project takes place, as restrictions may apply (e.g. ban, quarantine, isolation). We will take the necessary health precautions for our projects, but please contact your sending organisation to get more information in case you have any concerns.
