By considering and showing the history of these forcibly abducted and uprooted children, we would like to encourage a confrontation with the racist and inhuman ideology of the National Socialists. Furthermore, we would like to advocate for raising awareness of the importance of children's rights.
An important part of the project is workshops with youngsters in schools and other places in which they learn about the stories of individual stolen children and go over to talking about violations of children's rights today.
In October 2022, a learning platform for teachers and educators who want to cover this subject in class or in other settings with youngsters will be launched. There will be diverse learning materials available – from activity plans to a timeline to videos and podcasts.
The basis for creating these learning materials was articles written by experts coming from all four countries involved. They present the history of stolen children from their country’s perspective.
Apart from that, an exhibition on the history of stolen children will be created and available to the public.
by authors coming from Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Ukraine
