his EU-funded project seeks to honor and remember the untold stories of these courageous women, their invaluable contributions and sacrifices made by these women, highlighting their resilience, strength, and unwavering determination.
The essay contest is open to participants between the ages of 18 and 29. The contest aims to encourage young people to engage with the history of women’s resistance and to reflect on its relevance for contemporary struggles for justice and equality in Europe.
The essay contest’s central theme revolves around amplifying the voices that were often marginalized and overlooked during that tumultuous period of history. It strives to bring attention to the unique experiences, challenges, and acts of resistance carried out by women in three European countries, who fought against the tyranny, discrimination, and persecution imposed by the National Socialist regime.
In preparation for the essay competition, we organize one thematic research camp in Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic, bringing together scholars, NGOs, and young people to explore the history and legacy of women’s resistance. Through a combination of lectures, workshops, and site visits, participants will gain a deeper understanding of the diverse ways in which women resisted the Nazi regime, from acts of sabotage and espionage to more subtle forms of subversion and dissent.
