Getting acquainted with methodical and didactical approaches for the work on interviews with contemporary witnesses in history lessons (convential methods, Gestalt-pedagogy and Drama in education), to enable students to prepare, to organize and to reflect a meeting with contemporary witnesses.

We are looking at autobiographical video interviews of survivors of the Nazi- policy of extermination and persecution using the educational material of _erinnern.at. The main questions are: Which (new) perspectives are gained by interviews with contemporary witnesses when dealing with the history of the shoa and how can we use them as a source for the reconstruction of the past.

When dealing with the narration of people who remember traumatic experiences sensitive methodical and didactical concepts are needed. Therefore exercises will be introduced in the course which help to improve one’s self-perception and that of the others as well as methods which stimulate an active, creative and interactive way of reception. 

 

 

Discussion and analysis of interviews with contemporary witnesses as source, face to face meetings with contemporary witnesses, using methods and reflecting them, working on biographies in history lessons.

 

Ongoing participation (process orientated approach), completing tasks, semester project: preparing an interview for the use in an history lesson and preparing a learning unit.
