The “Workshop on the History and Memory of National Socialist Camps and Killing Sites” has been organized annually by university graduates for university graduates since 1994. Every year, it takes place at a different location  related to National Socialist camps and mass extermination sites. The program consists of excursions and presentations given by young graduates on current research topics related to this theme. A collective volume with articles on the lectures is published after each workshop. The aim of the workshop is to give young graduates the chance to discuss their work in a friendly atmosphere, to enable networking of university graduates from different countries and disciplines and to promote research on marginalized topics. Despite Covid-19 the 24th Workshop will hopefully take place in Salzburg, Austria in October 2020. We will comply with government regulations in the fight against the Corona virus. Therefore, we’re discussing hygiene measures etc and will peobably also stream all or part of the workshop. At the same time, we remain hopeful to meet in Salzburg. The programm will be published here soon.

You can also find updates on past worskhops and the resulting publications on this website.
