Bergen-Belsen International Summer School
The Bergen-Belsen International Summer School is aimed at international students from different disciplines interested in the challenges of commemorative culture in a global, digital and medial context.
The summer school offers lectures, guided tours, workshops and discussions held in English. Its aim is to develop visions for the future of educational work at museums and memorials.
The Bergen-Belsen International Summer School wants to give participants a deeper insight into the work of Bergen-Belsen as an international place of remembrance and learning while also exposing the students to the perspectives and projects of international speakers and scholars
This year’s Summer School will take place exclusively online. We will focus mainly on the future of Holocaust remembrance in the digital age. We will look at different digital tools and strategies and at the chances and possibilities new media offer to institutions and individuals working on the topic of the Holocaust and other mass atrocities.
