The Hague, The Netherlands


29 - 31 July 2024




In partnership with Terraforming, Intercultural Institute Timișoara, and the Arolsen Archives, EuroClio – European Association of History Educators is embarking on a new project, Facts Not Fiction – Young Historians Show How to Learn from the Past which aims to empower history educators and institutions to train interested students and youth groups to develop their own local histories of Nazi persecution. For this particular event, we are looking for tour guides and other tourist and heritage professionals who are interested in the Second World War and its incorporation into historical tourism. Those interested in the history of totalitarianism, the Holocaust memorial, and mid-20th century histories of migration and persecution should apply. While the project is primarily focused on Nazi persecution, those with little/no background in the Second World War as well as those with experience in other related areas of history are also encouraged to submit an application. For example, those who have worked on tours relating to the persecution of the Roma and Sinti or queer and disabled communities by the Nazis/ authoritarian regimes. If your professional experience is in a period/ location that is more distinct, but you still feel that it explores related themes, please elaborate in your application. Please send us a letter of motivation detailing your interest in the project, including an explanation of relevant archives and/ or source materials you have worked with. Please also attach a copy of your CV and send both to contact@terraforming.org before 17 June. We will cover all expenses related to your travel to/from The Hague, including accommodation and subsistence costs. The day of arrivals will be 29 July and the workshop will end on 31 July in the afternoon. Two nights of accommodation will be covered. Applicants will be accepted on a rolling basis, so we encourage you to apply early!
