Description: Since 1983, an international youth encounter with over 100 young people from 20 countries has taken place in Dachau every summer. As part of this encounter, the SCI volunteers take part in various workshops with questions on the history and contemporary relevance of National Socialism as well as in discussions with survivors. The focus is on the study part. More information about the camp can be found here: http://www.jugendbegegnung-dachau.de/. Dachau Concentration Camp was built on the site of a former munitions factory as a Nazi concentration camp. More than 200,000 prisoners were registered during the camp's twelve-year existence. Countless died from terror and the consequences of inhumane forced labour, illness and exhaustion.
Type of Work: In contrast to other workcamps, in this camp the main emphasis will be put on the studies. The volunteers will learn about the history of National Socialism through communication with survivors and through active participation in workshops. Current political situations will also be discussed.
