Bergen-Belsen International Summer School
The Bergen-Belsen International Summer School is aimed at international students from different disciplines interested in the challenges of commemorative culture in a global, digital and medial context. The summer school offers lectures, guided tours, workshops, and discussions held in English. Its aim is to develop visions for the future of educational work at museums and memorials.
The Bergen-Belsen International Summer School wants to give participants a deeper insight into the work of Bergen-Belsen as an international place of remembrance and learning while also exposing the students to the perspectives and projects of international speakers and scholars. In this year’s Summer School, the main topic will be the concept of transnational memory and its impact on Holocaust remembrance in general and on Bergen-Belsen more specifically. Another essential part of this year’s programme will be dedicated to a project that will be incorporated in the commemoration ceremony on the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in 2020.
