Learning and teaching

Educational materials for the classroom

Why do people collect art? How do works of art become political instruments? What does it mean for descendants when a looted work of art is returned? Our educational materials are closely aligned with the content of the website. They encourage pupils to engage with the "forgotten life stories" independently and in small groups using audio stations, short films and maps. The learning sets contain didactic handouts, work assignments, presentation texts and source materials on various aspects of the topic of art theft under National Socialism.

The materials can be used in the subjects of history, art, social studies and ethics and are suitable for pupils from year 9 onwards. They are free to use under the CC BY NC ND licence.
