The Arolsen Archives and the Goldener Westen design agency have been nominated for the Grimme Online Award for the #StolenMemory website and its innovative storytelling formats.
The Grimme Online Award recognizes exemplary, high-quality online content that appeals to young people, conveys generally relevant information and contributes to social education and enlightenment. The importance of such content right now was emphasized by Grimme Director Dr. Frauke Gerlach when the nominees were announced: “Particularly in this pandemic-induced time of crisis, the web is possibly the most important port of call for children, young people – for all of us in the end.”
Floriane Azoulay, Director of the Arolsen Archives, is delighted with the nomination: “We are exploring a lot of new ways to spark the interest of young people – and not just the ones in advanced history classes, to be precise. We are proud that #StolenMemory with its very emotional approach to history has been nominated for this significant award.”
The Grimme jury selected 28 projects from a total of 1,400 submissions this year. Eight other projects have been nominated alongside #StolenMemory in the category of Knowledge and Education. Members of the public have until June 10th to vote for their favorites to win the Public Award.
