The south of the country is dominated by the Thuringian forest, which crosses Thuringia from Eisenach to Sonneberg. In the north you can find the Thuringian Basin, which leads over the Kyffhäuser to the Harz Region. Its main cities are located on a lanyard from the West to the East, such as Gotha, Erfurt, Weimar, Jena and Gera.

In addition, there also exist many historical maps of Thuringia, for example during the 19th century (fragmented into little counties), during World War 2 and during the times of the GDR (no federal state, just 3 main districs: Suhl, Gera and Erfurt).

63. Liberation Day

With the opening of the new „Jugendbegegnungsstätte Buchenwald“, on the occasion of the 63. Liberation Day April 11th, an art project of three high schools and The International School Weimar will receive public attention.  Over several months, 75 students have been intensively facing up to the history of the concentration camp and with today’s memorial Buchenwald.

Get in touch with history

In the beginning, there was one question: „How do young people today deal with the crimes in the former concentration camp at Buchenwald, when the opportunity is given to express artistically?“. To anticipate: The artistic work surprises with a thoughtfull seriousness and maturity, which wasn´t necessarely expected from 15- to 18-year-olds.

Artistic work of students

The assortment of the artistic tools varied from school to school: Schiller- high schoolers preferred woodcuts and Goethe pupils applied themselves with graphic work. The students of the Thuringia International School chose photography, the Humboldt Gymnasium room installations. All together are showing those very intense reflections, which can be found in any of their pictures and short texts. The head of the Buchenwald Memorial is so much pleased with this impressive student work, so that a selection will be permanently visible in the new youth centre of encounters.
