Imprisonment, Mass Murder and Forced Labour

Imprisonment, Mass Murder and Forced Labour

Shortly after the war began, the tent cities of the Nazi party rally participants, which were situated in Langwasser, were replaced by countless wooden barracks, barbed wire fences and watch towers. An extensive camp complex was built for more than a hundred thousand civilians, prisoners of war and forced labourers from western, southern and eastern Europe. Students study the biographies of some of the inmates and discover how deeply the Nazi Party Rally Grounds were embroiled in the National Socialists' racist warfare and policy of annihilation during World War II.

During the 3-hour programme, they design a new biographical map of a former inmate, using photos or diaries or whatever can be found to document the personal history of the inmate.
