The pupils of a history class at the Catholic high school, St. Christophorus Gymnasium near Dortmund, will take part in a trip to Auschwitz. They are 16-18 years old. The group consists of 15 students and 2 teachers. The group want to learn more than what is in their textbooks about the perpetrators and victims of the Holocaust. This is important in view of new nationalistic tendencies in Germany and also the trivializing of genocidal tendencies. The memory of Auschwitz remains important for the Federal Republic of Germany and the genocide is not forgotten. Subsequently, the group will report on their journey and experiences to the other history classes at their school.
