Superheroines and Superheroes found!



We’d like to thank you very much for all the submitted biographies and cast votes!
Here are the final 12 heroines and heroes, who will be featured in our interactive mobile application. They stood up for dignity and human rights during World War II, opposing violence and injustice. Their turbulent lives illustrate 11 stages of genocide.
An interactive application will be created as part of the “Break The Vicious Circle” project, which aims to deepen the knowledge of high school students about national socialism, World War II and the Holocaust. We hope for the application to prompt reflection on the historical conditions that led to the Shoah, based on the concept of multiple stages leading to genocide by Prof. G. Stanton.

This project is supported by the EVZ Foundation and the Federal Foreign Office.
