Field of Study

Students and professors will study European history, especially the theme of forced migration via historic and artistic workshops, in interdisciplinary teams. The main focus is to identify possible correlations in forced relocations on a European scale, by comparing the history of migration in Poland, in Lorraine, in Saarland and in Luxembourg during and after World War 2. The correlation of History and Art is the most important component of the whole project.

Optional:
Training of body language and mediation training are meant to improve intercultural communication and team compatibility.
