In March 2013 Spielgelbild facilitated a Workshop for the international group of Metropolis, a program from arco e.V. in Wiesbaden. 25 Participants from 9 different Countries discussed their view on public urban spaces that show History. First they draw a monument from their hometown and presented it to the others.
In small mixed groups, the Participants researched urban Places of Rememberance in Wiesbaden. They created interesting Videos about their impressions of the Places and afterwards discussed the importance of those places.
For most of the Participants the specific German view of Commemorating Victims was new. Some complained about the lack of Commemoration of (War) Crimes in their own Country. Others said, it is important to remember positive things of History as well.
