Biographical Tracing – A journey from Oberhausen (Germany) to the memorials of Buchenwald and Auschwitz


With this topic the “Jugenclub Courage” organizes a study-project for young adults between the ages of 16 and 27 from Oberhausen and surrounding areas.

The Youth-club sees itself as a youth initiative and was founded in 1985 out of the peace movement. The basic idea is to give youth the opportunity to deal actively with the topics of peace, international understanding and racism/fascism, by offering them many different projects which are organized independently by the adolescents.

The main emphasis is the enquiry and research of biographies of chosen citizens from Oberhausen. Their period of suffering began with their arrest for different reasons followed by the transport to Buchenwald camp and in the end the deportation to the extermination camp Auschwitz- Birkenau.
The project gives the participants the history of Nazi terrorism and the system of the concentration and extermination camps, based on the biographies and concrete names of persons from their home town.
As a biographical tracing the journey leads chronologically to the three mentioned places, from  Oberhausen via Buchenwald to Auschwitz-Birkenau.
