Nijmegen, Bordeaux, Vienna, Lublin, Zaporizhzhia, Berlin - these are a few of the thousands of places in Europe, large and small, from which people were deported to Dachau concentration camp between 1933 and 1945. The international travelling exhibition "Names Instead of Numbers" shows a selection of 22 biographies from the Dachau Remembrance Book project. The exhibition will be shown in five languages and displayed in Germany, France, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Austria, and Poland. The accompanying brochure contains 84 pages.
The Dachau Remembrance Book
The Remembrance Book is a growing collection of biographies featuring former prisoners of Dachau. Over 100 biographies in various languages have been written since 1999.
School and university students, adults, and relatives of former prisoners participate in the project in order to remember the lives of individual prisoners of Dachau and to actively come to terms with the history of National Socialism. With the help of the project supervisor, they establish contact with Dachau survivors or the relatives and conduct interviews with them. They perform historical and archival research and, after reviewing all of their sources, compose a biography. The biographies are written entirely by the project participants and include pictures and original documents.
The exhibition is currently in Nottingham, Munich and Kiew.
