The house of Rosa Parks in Berlin? In fact, the US-artist Ryan Mendoza saved the house of
the African civil rightswoman for $ 500 before demolition and rebuilt in the Wrizener
Straße 19 in Berlin Wedding. A small wooden building full of history for the human rights
and citizenship movement worldwide! On the 8th and 9th of April the house can be visited.

International Day against Racism! The incidents of racist violence are increasing all the
time - a day is important, but not enough! Racism begins in our heads and concern to all of
us. We live together in one world. Everyone is in demand - everyone is responsible! These
two quotations from Martin Luther King, Jr remind us! "Whoever accepts evil without
contradiction actually works with him!" and “In the end, we will remember not the words
of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” events & materials

Great show! After five days of ITB fair in Berlin, we can say, that the presentation was a
complete success. At the INTERNATIONAL DELPHIC COUNCIL booth, we had numerous
discussions with guests from Germany and abroad. We also made some important
contacts with class companies! On the last day, King-Code was part of the final ITB show
and was repeatedly honored as an excellent bridge building project across political and
social boundaries. We had the exhibition in the foyer at the Palais am Funkturm, which was
also seen by the more than 700 visitors * of the show. (pictures)
Just you can use our interactive guide for the King-Tours! We designed a creative trail to the
historical points in Berlin. The application “Actionbound” ist for free. The King-Code
Actionbound include some links to historical audio-tapes and movies. Let’s go!
We had a very motivating talk with the office manager of the INTERNATIONAL DELPHIC
COUNCIL. There we got the opportunity to represent King Code and the exhibition at the
stall of the international delphic council at the ITB in Berlin, but this shall only be the start
of a longer cooperation.
As of today we are showing the King-exhibition in the Schadow-Gymnasium. There the
students could test our Actionbound for this exhibition. Everything went well at the
construction on Friday.
We are there! Today we have been informed that on the evening of the meeting of the
evangelic churchday we will have our own stall. We will not only present our project, but
also sell small culinary specialities. The income will 100% be used for the project.
Now we have released our first Bound. On Monday the students of the Schadow-
Gymnasium can test the Bound. The game has two components, creative tasks and
knowledge tasks. The students can compete against each other in teams and collect
points. Just download the free Actionbound-App and scan the QR-Code of the exhibition.
Yesterday the report about Irmela Mensah-Schramm has been broadcasted in the arte-
Journal, in which we are present. Sadly we can only be seen shortly at the end and our
statements also haven’t been used. If you would like to watch the report, you can do so at
the following link: ”Putzen und Sprayen gegen den Hass”.
Now we will go multimedial! We have an account on Actionbound! Through this platform
and the app we will create “Bounds” (games) for our tours and exhibitions in the coming
weeks and months. Through the app you can choose a Bound and answer the questions
about the King exhibition or the King tours alone or in a team. More information will
This evening the Jugendforum “denk! mal” was happening in the house of
representatives in Berlin. In the full plenary hall - we sat on a grandstand – ran a varied
program from 6pm which was created by students of different schools. Everything was
assembled from theatre scenes, acrobatic tricks, discussions and a movie to swing inserts.
As varied as the contributions were, the possibilities to remember were also manifold.
After the event in the plenary there was a small amount to eat and the politicians and
guests had the chance to visit the many stalls. We also held some talks at our stall. Among
other things, we were informed that a lecturer at the Humboldt University would like to
present our project as a successful example of a history mediation in a seminar. One of
her students was very happy to meet us in the house of representatives.
On our working meeting we decided to translate our site into English. Now the texts will be
distributed and the translating will start! We hope to reach a bigger demographic.
On the Martin Luther King Day a memorial ceremony took place, which we supported
through our exhibition, a movie and a small buffet. A total of 100 pieces of bread were
served in the school for the guests. Since we had lessons we could not be present
personally. The bread rolls were brought to the Sophienkirche by our teacher and two
Happy birthday Martin Luther King. Jr.! Just in time for the honorary and one day before
Martin Luther King Day, our new newsletter has been published.
This morning a radio article was broadcasted by Deutschlandfunk.
This was an exciting day! Today we had Irmela Mensah-Schramm, who reported on her
dedication and made an impressive workshop with us. In addition we got copies of graffiti
that she had collected over time. We were then able to remodel these with colour pencils,
to eradicate the message of hatred. There are some really great ones, which can be seen in
the galary. Of course we also talked about the current court process and how the court
and we would deicde. The workshop was accompanied by two film teams, who also
interviewed us. At the end of January 2017 the report will be broadcast in the arte-Journal.
In the evening we went to the construction of our stall in the Berlin parliament. This year
we are really well represented and can’t be overlooked. A group of students already
interviewed our project manager Mr. Schmöcker. It was also unknown to the students of
another school that King jr. had visited Berlin. On Monday the exhibition denk! mal 2017 –
Jugendforum Berlin will start.
