Schools

We’re partnered with seven local schools across our four participating countries. Pupils are developing their own individual or group projects and blog posts inspired by our sources, findings, and project-organised field trips to museums and other heritage venues, and will share their work at a schools conference in Amsterdam.

Altes Gymnasium
Oldenburg


We’re a group of 20 pupils from years 9, 10, and 11 (two participants are even younger), supervised by Sabine Conrad, and all of us are very interested in both English and the humanities. We meet outside of regular lessons once a week to work on our intoxicant-related project, which focuses on the social status of and attitudes towards people who took drugs in the early modern period, or consume drugs today. We’re planning to create a diary written in English by children from that period.

Gymnasium Neu Wulmstorf
Neu Wulmstorf


We’re nine students in years 10, 11, and 12 who find the combination of history and documentary making exciting. Supervised by Frank Schmekel, we’re going to explore the history of drugs in Hamburg and thus a theme that we would otherwise not encounter in school. We’re excited about exchanging ideas with other schools, museums, and historians in a European project, and putting our new findings into an entertaining form: short documentary films that give an insight into the historical dimension, while not forgetting the consequences for the present.

Cäciliengymnasium
Oldenburg

We’re a group of 12 students in years 9 to 11, supervised by Ina-Marie Goldbach. We’re focusing on the distribution of coffee, tea, tobacco, sugar, opium, and tea via trade routes in northwest Germany, and are developing an interactive exhibition on this topic. Questions that interest us are which substances reached the consumer in the past, how and by what means, and via which transport routes. We’re especially interested in the theme of illegality.
