Goal of the Activity

Provide a cultural understanding of the German past, to process and explain the events of the past, so that future generations can learn from this. 


The concentration Camp Buchenwald, as one of the biggest concentration camps in Germany/Europe, demonstrates an important part of German history and provides an example of the activities during the Nazi Regime and the Second World War in Thuringia. It is a horrible and tragic history, but a very important one to tell. With this excursion, ESN Jena aimed to process the events of this horrible time in German history, but that we can learn from this and educate ourselves. The excursion included a presentation about historical events and political structures during this time, for better a understanding, a short movie about the concentration camp itself, a tour through the concentration camp, and a visit to the Buchenwald Museum. 

Additionally, for the excursion only public transportation was used.
