Does history only happen in big politics and are the experiences of people, families and regions overlooked? In this workshop the participants became a historical detective, put their ear to the ground to find the stories and histories of Europeans and made their voices heard.

The participants got the chance to find out how historical events affected people from all over Europe and are still influencing the young generation of today. They received professional journalistic coaching in the journalistic skills of research techniques and in arranging and presenting the findings in a text. By conducting interviews, the youth journalists gathered information, learnt about the relevant historical events and arranged them in a journalistic piece. The young Editors Team of the History Campus was a part of this workshop, which gave the participants the opportunity to get »backstage« insights into the History Campus blog.
