EVZ Funding Programme – YOUNG PEOPLE Remember: [Re]create Digital History

Closing Date: 16/04/2023

Funding is provided to public and private non-profit organizations and institutions in European countries as well as Israel to create digital formats which open up sites of remembrance and learning relating to National Socialist persecution and extermination.

Stiftung Erinnerung, Verantwortung und Zukunft (EVZ Foundation of Remembrance, Responsibility and Future) supports measures and campaigns for equal dignity and equal rights for all people and against antisemitism, anti-gypsyism/anti-Roma discrimination, racism and all forms of discrimination. The Foundation is particularly active in Central and Eastern Europe, Israel and Germany. Together with the Auswärtiges Amt (German Federal Foreign Office), EVZ supports innovative projects in the sphere of international youth educational work, historical-political education as well as memorial site work.

The [Re]create Digital History Funding Line of the YOUNG PEOPLE Remember Programme (JUGEND erinnert) focuses on digital formats which open up sites of remembrance and learning relating to National Socialist persecution and extermination for international historical-political education on a sustainable basis. Funding is available for projects which:

  • Develop target group-oriented digital formats for historical teaching for international youth encounters which combine analogue and digital learning in an innovative way and provide plenty of opportunities for participation.
  • Develop and use digital tools for international youth educational work as well as historical-political education.
  • Originate from the field of interactive biographies or applications of virtual reality, augmented reality, apps, social media campaigns, serious games, interactive websites as well as media stations.
  • Use campaigning to address the issues of historical-political education in a way that is target-group-oriented and low-threshold.
  • Have a pilot phase to test the developed digital tools and applications through a young focus group before implementation.
  • Counter various forms of antisemitism, racism, historical revisionism and current group-focused enmity.
  • Take National Socialism as the starting point to make it possible to experience the relevance of remembrance for the reality of young people‘s lives.
  • Facilitate a digital culture of remembrance that is actively shaped by young people.
  • Ensure sustainable use of developed formats.
  • Create cooperation between educational institutions and players from the civic-tech sector.
  • Develop products at the end of the project which will continue after the funding period and have the potential to stimulate high-profile debates.

Participants should be between 14-35 years old.
