November 19, 2018 - November 21, 2018
On November 19th 2018 the “Train of Memory“ from France will visit Auschwitz. This initiative is led by Martine Quérette from Le Lycée Notre Dame de Sion, who in cooperation with other organizations, schools and SIDIC (Centre de documentation Judéo-chrétien). The first train of memory to the former concentration camp Auschwitz came in 1995. This year it is arriving for the eleventh time, but sadly without Jean Dujardin, a main initiator of the train of Memory, who did in March 2018.
This invitation is addressed to adults (parents and teachers) as well as to young people. During the two-day rail journey more than 500 pupils with their teachers and parents will take part in seminars about the Holocaust and World War II. They will have the opportunity to reflect on what happened. During their visit in Auschwitz-Birkenau they will confront the place they have previously known only from literature and textbooks.
