«In­te­gra­tion as An­ti-​Re­flec­tive Coat­ing»

Con­sid­er­ing His­tor­i­cal-​Po­lit­i­cal Ed­u­ca­tion and Mem­o­ry Work with Young Peo­ple of Col­or in Ger­many

Dominant debates on so-called Holocaust-education in the migration society not only evoke a reactionary German community of remembrance but also construe a deficient migrant. The experiences of the youth culture project Forgotten Biographies reveal various entangled pitfalls in terms of politics of funding, representation and reception and will be discussed in order to exemplify spaces of action and reception wherein young people of color have to operate when trying to negotiate «German» history in public.
