Encounters with Auschwitz – Keeping Memory alive
This journey of commemoration has the intention of looking back on this dark chapter of German history and keeping the horror before us. Without any guilt, we want to face the historic responsibility for the crimes committed by the Nazis. In that spirit we want to enquire about political consequences, societal values and civil demeanour in order to bring forward a prejudice-free, humane and democratic union of people across all borders.
