We run a German-American social-history project that explores and presents connections between people from both countries. For this purpose, we show exhibits, hold lectures and conduct eyewitness interviews: We can always use helping hands to carry out these activities.
The focus of our research is on social and everyday history, i.e. the history that takes place between major events, especially those created by states. An important driving force for our work is the firm belief that dealing with history is the best protection against conflict between people or even states.

Because our project is "at home" in the same building at some local staff live and most of the Workawayers tasks, travellers will gain from exposure to "natives" even as they work. In addition, they will grow a deeper understanding of the flow and dynamics of history, both on large but especially small scales. Those needing a break from big-city life will appreciate even more the tranquil, rural setting which Bad Langensalza -- itself a small city of 17,000 -- enjoys.
It would be nice if you had a good working knowledge of English (in the EU, at level B2), Word and Excel, a friendly- and open-minded nature as well as the ability to be self-directed.

Our "Haus" is a huge structure, built upon a medieval foundation (complete with arch-capped cellars). It's ample space allows for interns as well as travelers or other shorter-term visitors space where they can withdraw: Non-residents enjoy use of their own furnished room, bathroom and full kitchen. The Haus has been completely renovated since the fall of the Berlin Wall and offers every comfort and amenity that moderns expect.
"Salza" is served by frequent and efficient train connections, primarily in the direction of Goettingen or Erfurt, but also due south to Gotha, where a short wait connects travelers to fast trains to Frankfurt International Airport, etc. Leipzig is a lively and, especially for young people, attractive city: It is relatively near--as is Berlin, Hamburg, etc.
Also nearby is the Hainich National Park, home to one of Europe's last five virgin beech woods ("Buchenwaelder"). The area offers endless biking and hiking trails, hot-spring spas, sports facilities, etc. "Salza" has almost 10 public gardents (e.g., Japanese, rose, Rhododendren, etc.) and 17 towers or gates surviving from the Middle Ages. The Old City ("Altstadt") boasts beautiful ancient buildings, fountains, a Glockenspiel, a children's "Play Castle" + much more.
