The visit to the European Centre and historic site is conducted with accompanying teachers. In order to accompany the visit, the CERD sells a visitors' guide, available at the reception desk for €2.
The teaching pack What Is A Concentration Camp? The Kl-Natzweiler example is an interesting tool offering a dynamic approach to the site. It meets a need to welcome secondary school students and takes account of changes in programmes and new issues involving the European Resistance and deportation.
Two themes help students understand the spaces of the Centre and camp:
A quotation calling for vigilance, resistance and commitment illustrates each page so that students keep thinking about those issues after the visit is over.
The pack can be used before, during or after the visit as well as in the classroom. Its content can be spread out between several sub-groups so that each one deals with a particular aspect in greater depth.
