Your school wants to stand up against anti-Semitism and racism? You are interested in modern and excellent remembrance work? Then become a ZWEITZEUGEN cooperation school: Join us in turning children and young people from your school into secondary witnesses every year, thus ensuring that the memories of Holocaust witnesses never fall silent.

What is a ZWEITZEUGEN cooperation school?

A ZWEITZEUGEN cooperation school wants to preserve memories of contemporary witnesses to the Holocaust and at the same time assumes social responsibility today. It encourages children and young people to participate in a targeted way and to get involved in democracy and against anti-Semitism and racism.

ZWEITZEUGEN e.V. comes to your school at least once a year for arranged workshops. We agree on the conditions together. The goal is to enable and encourage children and young people to become secondary witnesses.


In addition, a ZWEITZEUGEN cooperation school enjoys the following benefits

  • Exhibition catalog
  • Badge: "ZWEITZEUGEN-Schule" (Secondary witness school)
  • Advertising on our website as well as our logo for the school website
  • One free digital event per year for teachers/parents/multipliers/film night
