What do you support with your donation?

Geschichtomat has been firmly anchored in Hamburg's educational landscape since 2013. Every year, we are able to run up to eight project weeks at schools. We want to offer young people independent access to Jewish history. Students should be able to research independently, conduct interviews and get to know their Jewish neighborhood or its history. With this approach, we want to promote tolerance and effectively counter anti-Semitic prejudices.

Media education and teaching Jewish history is an important part of our work. The participating students learn how to use cameras and editing programs. They deal with copyrights and create their own digital educational offerings within the project weeks, which in turn are aimed at students.

With your donation you support make a project week possible:

  • 500 Euro for renting the needed technical equipment
  • About 3.000 Euro for the work of two media educators and one cultural educator during every project week.

With smaller and larger amounts you help us to make project weeks possible. Our project shall always be free of charge for any school.

But you also support the creation of teaching materials. These are intended to facilitate and promote the use of contributions already made in the classroom.
