Hadamar Memorial Museum sees itself as a place of extra-curricular learning in the context of historical and political education.
At the heart of the Memorial Museum’s educational work lies the critical examination of the history of the Nazi “euthanasia” crimes at the historical site of the former Hadamar killing centre.
During this critical examination, the focus lies on the individual stories of those persecuted and murdered in the course of the Nazi “euthanasia” crimes, but also on taking a closer look at the perpetrators and the organization of these crimes.
In addition to passing on historical knowledge, the aim of this multi-perspective approach is to encourage visitors to draw their own conclusions, to come up with questions for the present and to think critically about how all this relates to their own actions and responsibilities.
The educational services offered by the Memorial Museum – such as guided tours, workshops and seminar days – are geared toward various age groups and audiences in terms of content and methodology and are carried out by the Memorial Museum’s educational team and its experienced guides.
