About us

Center ÜBERLEBEN has been treating victims of torture and war-time violence since 1992. The Center offers a broad range from rehabilitation programs for social integration of refugees and newcomers in Germany to facilitate their social participation. Women, men, adolescents and children receive both medical and psychotherapeutic help as well as social assistance. The people concerned come from over 50 countries including Syria, Afghanistan, Chechnya, Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Somali, Kosovo, Lebanon, Eritrea and other African countries. So that patients are able to communicate, specially trained interpreters assist in therapeutic treatments and other services at the Center.

Due to legal reasons, the outsourcing of operative activities of the „Behandlungszentrum für Folteropfer e.V.“ into a new legal form has been necessary. The registration of the Zentrum ÜBERLEBEN gGmbH took place in 2016.

Die Spenden werden für die Durchführung unseres Filmsommercamps verwendet sowie für begleitende Deutschkurse. Im Sommer fährt eine Gruppe jugendlicher Zugewanderter und Geflüchteter nach Brandenburg, um dort gemeinsam ihre unterschiedlichen Erlebnisse mit dem Medium Film zu bearbeiten und damit auch zu verarbeiten. Begleitende Deutschkurse sind ein ergänzendes Angebot im Rahmen des umfassenden Rehabilitations- und Integrationskonzepts des gesamten Zentrums.
