The project „The Contemporary Witnesses Future“ will interview former prisoners from the Mittelbau-Dora concentration camp in their current countries of residence in eastern and western Europe and Israel. Contrary to the majority of contemporary witness projects, the main focus here is not on their experiences under Nazism, but rather the survivors‘ beliefs about the existing and future remembrance culture in Germany, Europe and worldwide. Recollections of experiences in the concentration camp, as well as post war experiences and specific life-histories up to the present day will provide the framework and background for the testimonies. These layers of memory will be integrated accordingly. The project will be arranged and conducted in cooperation with the German office of the International School for Holocaust Studies Yad Vashem and the ITS in Bad Arolsen.
