BCDSS Professor Claudia Jarzebowski and student assistant Tobias Happ, together with the BCDSS PR Team, have designed a 15 minute "pop-up lesson" on the history of child labor in the 19th century as part of this year's Wissenschaftsrallye.

At the time of industrialization in Europe, child labor was a permanent feature of the working world. Children worked both in factories and in agriculture or at home, often under severe physical and psychological conditions. The dangers to which they were exposed, however, also led to the first consideration of rights for children. Behind this was not always compassion, but also the concern that the family would not be fed and that sick children would not become good soldiers.

We offer a fun educational experience (both intellectual and physical) that gives participants a feel of what child labor meant to the children involved and what role child labor plays in the history of childhood.

If you know any children aged 13 to 17 in the Bonn area, please spread the word!
