Program: To remember – to meet – to understand and to work for the future will be our guiding slogan in these two weeks. We will learn about the history of the concentration camp Dachau and other aspects of the National Socialism in Germany. We will always ask: What did we learn about this? Where do we find racism, antisemitism and discrimination today? The program consists of different workshops, discussions with eye-witnesses and Holocaust survivors, guided tours through the Memorial Site, tours in Dachau and Munich, day trips. There is also time for personal conversation, sports, parties and the chance to experience the historical sites from at the present time. As there will be contacts to German native speakers, workcamp is good possibility to improve your German language skills. We will offer volunteers to give a contribution to the programme: You can give your own workshop or teach other volunteers some dances or games. Feel free to contact your camp leader even in the time before the youth exchange.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

Locatie en vrije tijd

Please note! This is not a classical Workcamp, the project is part of an international Youth Meeting Good knowledge of English or German and interest in the topic is required. For 40 years, the International Youth Meeting is a place for young people from all over the world to discuss issues concerning the past, the present and the future. Young people will look at the history of the concentration camp at Dachau, National Socialism and present forms of exclusion, racism and discrimination. The principles of exchanging ideas, experiencing different cultural backgrounds, as well as Holocaust education are the core ideas of the International Youth Meeting. It is primarily organized by a team of volunteers. Many survivors of the National Socialist regime will talk about their personal experiences of persecution, whether in the concentration or labour camps or working in the resistance. Background: In March 1933 one of the first Nazi concentration camps was established in the town of Dachau, near Munich. The Dachau concentration camp became a model for other concentration camps and also a place of the Nazi SS. Over 200.000 people from different countries were imprisoned in Dachau between 1933 and 1945. Thousands of prisoners died from terror and the consequences of inhuman practices, diseases, exhaustion and hunger. In 1965 as a result of the initiative of some survivors of the concentration camp the place became a memorial place. And in 1983 there was offered the first youth meeting organized by young people of the region.


According to the current regulations, we can only accept volunteers, who are either fully vaccinated (2 to 3 shots of one of the following vaccines: BioNtech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca or Johnson&Johnson, Novavax) or recovered (date of infection must be max 180 days old). We will make tests in the beginning and during the workcamp.


A letter of motivation is needed! Please bring clothes which suit the weather, musical instruments, games, songbooks or whatever you want for the leisure time... Materials of the study part of the camp, a map of your country, photos and things that help you to describe your country to other participants of the workcamp. You should have a working knowledge of English and/or German to communicate without any difficulties. You should be interested in various subjects and in taking part in workshops.
