Study trip to Auschwitz “In the Footsteps of the Past – Against Forgetting”

In October 2019, the staff of the Children and Youth Club of the Chemnitz Youth Church will once again conduct a study trip to Auschwitz. This is to give the participants an impression of the terrible events in the concentration camp Auschwitz -Birkenau during the period of National Socialism. Each day will begin and end in the Centre for Dialogue and Prayer with reflection time.

During the journey the group will visit the former camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. In the evenings there will be an opportunity to share reflections and impressions from the visit to the Memorial Site. To get to know the country and its inhabitants better, the group will go to Krakow on the last day of the visit to Poland, to see the Jewish Quarter and learn about its history.
