The PRORA CENTRE has many years of experience in doing historical-political educational work and since 2001 it has been recognised several times for its projects, including by the Federal Agency for Civil Education.
The aim of this educational work is to involve adolescents and adults by engaging with the regional history of Prora, and the island of Rügen and Mecklenburg Vorpommern in order to enable them to grasp, analyse and make sense of greater historical relationships. With this aim, we design our educational offerings in an age-appropriate manner and in close consultation with the groups themselves. Special interests and needs may thus be considered in the planning and implementation of projects and seminars.
We use a participatory methodology in order to promote independent engagement
with historical content. This includes working in small groups and appropriating
historical content in a self-determined and creative manner.
In light of Prora’s past, democracy education is important to us. In addition to providing a overall context for history, we want to encourage people to think about society and their role within it.
