Learning material

Here we present you didactic material, which offers pupils, students and interested people a deepening and intensive examination of the contents of the exhibition and its many different components.

The learning material was developed by students of the University of Osnabrück, under the direction of Prof. Dr. phil. Andreas Brenne, as part of the seminar "Didactic Research: German Crisis Landscapes - Remembrance Culture and Critical Art Education".

Learning material A (from grade 8):
The Norderney Synagogue
Based on the approach of a critical art mediation, the pupils deal with the sediments of Jewish life on the island of Norderney. Emotions and associations are to be evoked so that the pupils can reflect on what happened. The significance of remembering, whether and how it is remembered, is the focus here.

Learning material B: (from grade 10):
The "Old Synagogue" in Essen as a building of transformation
By means of the "Old Synagogue" in Essen" the pupils can find an individual starting point/access to the topic of memorials, remembrance culture and Jewish life and culture. The pupils deal with the specific changes in the architecture of the "Old Synagogue" in Essen and work independently on individual projects, which they can present to the class.

The cooperation partners of the project Seven Places in Germany have also designed learning materials, which we do not make available for direct download for copyright reasons, but will be happy to provide on request.

We also offer the opportunity to hold digital event formats with institutions and partners from the seven places and all other cooperation partners. Also have a look at our Open Virtual Museum for further Information.
