Volkshochschule Bochum, Gustav-Heinemann-Platz 2-6, 44787 Bochum
In the introductory workshop we will discuss the understanding of resistance and human rights in the work of Fritz Bauer. What brings people to resistance, what is the relationship between resistance and human rights, what forms of resistance can we find? We will discuss Fritz Bauer’s statement that there is a duty to resist when human rights are violated and what this means for our democracy and human coexistence.
With the help of examples, we learn about courageous stories of resistance and survival and also gain a first insight into the practice of library work:
On the basis of individual (also local) stories, we learn how to build a library of human rights and stories of resistance and survival. Participants can contact the seminar moderators in advance with stories that should be researched in the workshops. Model stories for the workshop will be agreed upon at the beginning of the workshop series.
