Last school year, during their remote lessons, German students from the advanced language acquisition course produced their own “eyewitness reports” about their experiences during the Corona lockdown days.
The students wrote texts and diary entries, drew comics and recorded interviews in German about their daily routines and challenges during this time.
Annika, Lilly, Marie, Molly, Sára und Vivi sent in their reports to a competition of the Universities Gießen and Köln in collaboration with the Koerber Institut in Hamburg to build a German national archive about the Corona times (www.geschichtswettbewerb.de/mitmach-aktion). Their works have been saved there for posteriority and the students have now been awarded with a Certificate from the Koerber Foundation for their reports.
From Autumn this year, all entries will be displayed in the “Coronarchiv” (https://coronarchiv.geschichte.uni-hamburg.de/projector/s/coronarchiv/page/willkommen
