Silenced Memories. Women’s history as a topic and Oral history as a method. Transfer between International Youth Projects, Educational Practice and Research
This publication is addressed to persons who apply the oral history method in their professional life as a non-formal youth educator, a teacher or an academic at university. The editors' intention is to pave the way for a transfer of experiences between these groups. The four essays written by academics and educators serve as an impulse to discuss what we hear when we are talking to contemporary witnesses, what history we learn, and how to deal with gaps in the story. Two project presentations and an interview follow the contributions.
The title is an outcome of a joint project between the Kreisau-Initiative and the European Network Remembrance and Solidarity (Warsaw, Poland), and was funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Cultural Affairs and the Media (Die Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien).
