We invest ourselves in educational trips with the aim of enabling young people to perceive Jewish life in Europe in the past, present and future and to gain a personal connection to it themselves. We consider this education to be particularly effective in the fight against anti-Semitism.
A short review.
In April 2015, we visited the former Theresienstadt ghetto and Shoah survivors in Prague with a small group and interviewed them about their lives.
In October 2016, we visited the former concentration camp Auschwitz with a group of young people. Previously, we had heard Auschwitz survivor Eva Szepesi talk about her story of survival in Germany.
About half of our team visited the Buchenwald Memorial in June 2017.
In 2018, we were in Krakow with Israeli friends and attended the memorial ceremony at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial on January 27 (see picture above).
In 2019, we accompanied Holocaust survivors from Germany to the old homeland of Transnistria (now Ukraine, Moldova and Transnistria). Here is our [conclusion] in English.
In 2020, before the Corona crisis had really come to a head, we were in Israel with a group of young adults.
