Depressing, poignant, stirring

As part of the history lessons, our 10th grade visited the memorial site "Geschlossener Jugendwerkhof Torgau" on March 21, 2023. Through in-depth source work, the students learned details about the lives and fates of the young people who were sent to this "youth welfare" facility of the GDR. Particularly impressive was the tour of the so-called dark cells, which today are the only authentic site of the former Jugendwerkhof that has been preserved. Young people who broke the rules in the eyes of the staff were locked up here for days on end.
