“We as grandchildren of the war generation”

Caritas Bonn offers time in Oświęcim for its members during Holy Week 2018. It has over 50 social institutions and services which are provided by nearly 1000 staff members.

The days in Auschwitz are an opportunity for personal reflection about the war and the Holocaust for the participants who belong to the „Third Generation“ and therefore are without personal experiences concerning the subject matter.

Holy Week was chosen on purpose as a very spiritual time to come to Auschwitz. The experiences made here will be part of the spiritual and religious values, ideas and beliefs of the participants. Time for prayer will be included. There will be guided tours, visits, a workshop and a multimedia presentation for participants to engage with Auschwitz.
