Before visiting Auschwitz, neither Maria nor Vida had ever been to a concentration camp. The two young women visited the site with a German interfaith group of Muslims, Christians and Jews to learn more about this dark chapter in Germany’s history.
Auschwitz, the largest of the Nazi concentration and extermination camps, has come to symbolize the horrors of the Holocaust. A group of young Germans of different faiths travel to visit the camp together. They share their thoughts and impressions, and also meet survivors of the Shoah. The trip’s organizer says such excursions fulfill an important purpose, as not all schools in Germany cover the Nazi era in enough detail, and the trips also provide an opportunity to combat growing antisemitism and anti-Muslim sentiment in Germany. By the end, all the participants agree that every young German should visit a former concentration camp, at least once.
