In addition to events aimed at discussing the issues of teaching history, the program of the project includes an online quiz and an essay competition. The Russia - Germany: History and Memory quiz is designed to reveal knowledge about the history of bilateral relations between the countries and arouse interest in independent study of this issue.

The theme of the essay competition will be History in Biographies. Schoolchildren and students over 14 years old are invited to write about the work of people who fought against fascism or left a mark on the development of relations between countries.
