Roads not taken. Oder: Es hätte auch anders kommen können.
This year’s theme is inspired by an exhibition at the Deutsches Historisches Museum in Berlin: “Roads not taken. Oder: Es hätte auch anders kommen können” which focuses on key “Wendepunkte” in German history and explores what might have happened if events had taken a different course.
Competitors will be able to choose one of four turning points and create an alternate version of history in the form of a letter or diary entry. The final event will take place in November this year and great prizes are available including one of three trips to Berlin and a free language course courtesy of the Goethe Institut London.
Submissions will be accepted online: https://www.daad.org.uk/en/about-us/who-we-are/daad-projects/german-language-competitions/roads-not-taken/
Deadline for submissions: 3rd May 2023.
