The Foundation Flight, Expulsion, Reconciliation seeks to offer diverse educational opportunities so that it will become a place for lively discussions, learning about history, and national and international scholarly research.
In order to realize this objective and reach a broad audience, educational offerings are being developed in various languages for children and families, young people and adults, pupils and teachers, university students and multipliers as well as other educational institutions, individual visitors, and groups of visitors. They will all be actively included in the work on the future Documentation Center.
Long-term cooperative agreements with schools, universities and other research institutions will continue past the Foundation’s opening and will extend beyond these institutions, creating a sustainable scholarly exchange.
Twelve million refugees and expellees were registered in East and West Germany in 1950. They had to eke out a living under extremely difficult economic and social conditions. Cultural differences also presented a challenge to the coexistence of the locals and the new arrivals. This is also evident in the traditional clothing that some Hungarian Germans continued to wear.
