The Mauthausen Committee is expanding its online educational materials in the German language. A video will be published daily on the homepage as well as on Facebook and Instagram.
“With this project, we also want to support teachers in the challenge of providing their students with materials for learning online,” said the director of the memorial, Barbara Glück.
In one of the first videos, the educational director Gudrun Blohberger offers an introduction to the new project.
The Mauthausen Committee will also launch an app offering information on the history of the concentration camp, including each of the 49 locations of subcamp. Historical and current photos, aerial photos, videos and interviews with survivors will complete the educational offer.
Every year, more than 70,000 students deal with the topic of Nazi crimes in the memorial, including over 56,000 students from Austria
