  • 1-2 weeks before the beginning of the project week
  • approx. 3 hours each.
  • 1. kick-off workshop at school (the students get to know the project and the team, and are introduced to Jewish history and culture)
  • 2. kick-off workshop at an extracurricular learning location (dealing with Jewish present and past in the city, e.g. by searching for traces at Grindelviertel, division of topics and groups for the project week)

  • Day 1: Familiarisation of the groups with their topic, research, setting of dates and interview partners, development of a "script”
