In addition to our international volunteer services in the form of one-year services abroad and summer camps, Aktion Sühnezeichen Friedensdienste is active in other areas of social, historical and political education and encounter work. Here you can find further information on our various fields of work.

History(ies) in the migration society

History in the migration society is diverse and discourses on remembrance are expanded by the perspectives of people with immigration histories. The field of activity deals with the significance of National Socialist history, its continuities and consequences and takes a critical look at anti-Semitism and racism.

Work against right-wing extremism

The “Bundesarbeitsgemeinschaft Kirche und Rechtsextremismus – aktiv für Demokratie und Menschenrechte” (BAG K+R) is an association of initiatives, organizations and working groups. Through its work, it aims to identify, constructively counter and overcome group-related misanthropy (GMF) within and outside the churches.
