The Historical Workshop in Minsk is a joint Belarusian and German project which initiates and encourages programmes of historical education. It supports military historical research, studies of the invasion of Belarus and Belarusian and German historiography. The project involves victims of Nazism and a small community of child survivors of the Minsk Ghetto. The Holocaust Workshop hosts small exhibitions, lectures, and events. Those survivors still active, are happy to meet with visitors and add their voices to walking tours of the area that was the ghetto. The Historical Workshop was founded in 2002 and is situated in one of the few preserved buildings of the former Minsk ghetto thanks to the initiative of international educational centers (Dortmund International Educational Center, Johannes Rau Minsk International Educational Center) and the Union of Belarusian Jewish Public Associations and Communities. Since 2014, the workshop has been named after Leonid Levin, a Belarusian architect, creator of the memorial complexes "Khatyn", "Yama" and "Krasny Bereg". It is free to visit the Workshop.
