Educators from the Auschwitz Museum and other memorials in Poland had a chance to examine the German perspective on commemorating the victims of Nazism. As part of the Tracks Project, they spent a week as invited guests at the Documentation Center in Nuremberg, which is located in the historic Congress Hall on the grounds where party rallies were held under the Third Reich.
Several hundred residents of the Oświęcim area have gathered at the grave of the Soviet POWs in Brzezinka. The prayers in the spirit of reconciliation between Poles and Russians were an initiative by Museum Director Dr. Piotr M.A. Cywiński, Oświęcim starosta Józef Kała, and Oświęcim wójt Andrzej Bibrzycki.
