History? Our Story!
Our stand at re:publica 24 and session program

From May 27 to 29, 2024, the Alfred Landecker Foundation will have its own stand at the digital society conference re:publica for the first time. We will present interactive, digital projects of the foundation and its partners that focus on remembering the history of National Socialism and the Holocaust.

Our democracy is under pressure and a look at history shows that it does not suddenly fade away, but gradually. In order to learn from history and counteract the current dangers, we are called upon to engage with history. Because it is our history.

We are convinced that remembering the history of National Socialism and the Holocaust is not a value in itself, but allows us to recognize group hatred in the here and now and take effective action against it. Digital remembrance projects play a central role in this, and remembering the Holocaust in the digital space should be an integral part of a contemporary culture of remembrance.

Together with our partners, we will present a selection of interactive, digital projects at the foundation’s stand at re:publica. Visitors are invited to test the digital remembrance game Remember. The Children of Bullenhuser Damm, visit the digital exhibition Forced Homes or get to know the escape game RÄTSELRÄUME.

In keeping with this, Miriam Menzel from our program team will be speaking on 29 May from 4.15 to 5.15 pm on Stage 11 in a panel discussion on the topic „Why should I care about the Holocaust? Neue Zugänge mit digitalen Spielen“ with Tabea Widmann (Stiftung Digitale Spielekultur), Markus Bassermann (Stiftung Hamburger Gedenkstätten und Lernorte) and Michael Zöller (ROTxBLAU). Please note that the panel is in German.

In a separate area of the stand (our Speaker's Corner), members of the Landecker community will come together on all three days of the event to talk about their work.

We look forward to your visit!
