A core aspect of a volunteer's responsibilities at the memorial is pedagogical work with visitors. After an intensive training period in a team, volunteers work independently with tourists as well as registered groups. On a daily basis, volunteers encounter national and international guests. They introduce these visitors to the historical site and convey its contemporary significance.
Detailed information about the responsibilities that a volunteer year at the Mittelbau-Dora Concentration Camp Memorial entails and about the application process can be found on the website of the Landesvereinigung Kulturelle Jugendbildung Thüringen e.V. See the link boxes at the bottom of the page.
