Contemporary History and Human Rights

For us, historical learning and human rights education are deeply intertwined. This is why in 2013 we funded a new field of work called "Contemporary History and Human Rights".

In our projects, we want to deal with history across national boundaries, commemorate the resistance of the Kreisau Circle and other political actors against National Socialism and highlight connections between their work and the necessity of the struggle for human rights, equality, social justice and against oppression in our time.
