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. 01/17/2017  On our working meeting we decided to translate our site into English.

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.
