From Past to Future - Summer 2005
New forms of remembrance - the project Gebrüder Wolf

An international communication project of young people including German history, emigration and homelessness

In June 2005 young artist from four nations (USA, Israel, Palestine and Germany) will meet in Hamburg to have a look at their historical, cultural and social roots using mediums like theatre, film and music. While looking at the consequences of history they will describe a line which leads from past to present - to their personal situation of life and to their view at the world that they live in. In cooperation with schools from Hamburg ideas for schools and education shall be developed. The starting point of this project is the story of the Gebrüder Wolf from Hamburg, drawing a line from the beginning of last century to present and future connecting three continents.

There will be 4 symposiums on the following subjects:

- The meaning of music for an intercultural exchange
- The meaning of film for an intercultural exchange
- The consequences of emigration on the third generation after Auschwitz
