Bi-, tri- or international youth exchanges are meeting places for young people from 12 to 27. During these events, the participants deal with experiences of war and violence in the 20th century. Together they develop messages to support peaceful and tolerant togetherness and thus actively help shape Europe’s culture of remembrance. Current sociopolitical questions play an important role here. Workcamps are a special type of youth exchange. They combine practical work in the form of maintaining war graves and memorials with the examination and discussion of topics and issues with regard to the respective memorial site. The participants therefore make a valuable contribution to designing and maintaining graves with dignity so that they may serve as memorials against war and tyranny.
