Project days Auschwitz Birkenau of the BHAK/ BHAS Hollabrunn
Back to the Past – the Hell of Auschwitz Birkenau

In September, a group of students from the Federal Trade Academy and Federal Trade School in Hollabrunn, Austria, will again stay at the Center for Dialogue and Prayer. During their stay, the students will learn about the history of Auschwitz by participating in a guided tour through the museum and presentations.

Additionally, a visit to the town of Oświęcim and a meeting with an Auschwitz survivor are planned. Those meetings have proven to be particularly important for the students, as they always leave a great impression on the group by offering a personal insight into the horrors of Auschwitz.

Finally, the group will finish their visit with a trip to Krakow, where they will learn more about the town’s long history.

The main aim of the visit under the guidance of Ms. Annemarie Bierbaumer is to enable the students to reflect about their own way of living and how they are treating people from other cultures today.
