In 2020, the German War Graves Commission used the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War as an opportunity to launch an innovative project that combines encounter, reconciliation and education in a youth-oriented form: PEACE LINE. Peace Ambassadors wanted.
You will travel with young people between 18 and 26 from different countries for two weeks on a route through several countries in Western, Central and Southeastern Europe. The group will visit places of remembrance of the First and Second World War, the division of Europe and the European Unification. Pedagogically experienced team members will accompany the journey.
You will learn together about the historical events of these places and about the different existing perspectives that show how the same events are told in different stories. In this way, you will experience that the history you learned in school is not necessary the history that other young people from Europe learn in their countries or regions. It is one of the main goals of PEACE LINE to show you the existence of different historical perspectives and to discuss with you the origins and consequences of these stories.
