History for a changing society
The demographic composition of German school classes is changing, as ever more girls and boys come from immigrant backgrounds. This state of affairs has to be taken into account in History lessons and civic education. Since part of a school class may not have a personal connection to Germany’s past, new methods and thematic approaches are required to make recent history interesting for all – for example, by including the history of migration. To help with this, Gegen Vergessen - Für Demokratie e.V. has compiled a handbook funded by and in cooperation with the Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung (Federal Agency for Civic Education).
