There is No Revolution to Make Without Women

HERstory and Dynamics of the Democratic Change of 1989 in the GDR. Educational Material

During our cooperation we have also developed educational materials. The methodological part III is based on the experiences we made during two 5-day workshops. We had jointly tested the methods presented by the partners. In an exchange on historical issues and certain events of the past, we came to the conclusion that transformation processes can continue to affect people intensively even 30 years later. We chose the events of autumn 1989 in the GDR and partly in Eastern Europe as the material’s theme and hope that it will offer a variety of inspirations.

Ohne Frauen ist keine Revolution zu machen

HERstory und die Dynamiken des demokratischen Umbruchs von 1989 in der DDR

Während unserer Kooperation haben wir auch Bildungsmaterialien entwickelt. Der methodische Teil III beruht auf den Erfahrungen, die wir im Laufen von zwei 5-tägigen Workshops gemacht haben. Wir hatten die von den Partnern vorgestellten Methoden gemeinsam erprobt. Im Austausch über Inhalte bzw. bestimmte historische Ereignisse kamen wir zu der Einsicht, dass Transformationsprozesse die Menschen auch noch 30 Jahre später intensiv beschäftigen können. Wir wählten die Ereignisse des Herbstes 1989 als Thema für das Kapitel und hoffen, es bietet vielfältige Anregungen.

What means HERstory?

During the project, we got inspired by our Polish partners who work with the HERstory approach. What does it mean? Inga and Edyta wrote an explanation including practical information on workshops following the HERstory method.
