From the 7th -14th of August, for the third time since 2011, the Matzevah Foundation (TMF) from Norcross, Georgia, USA resided at the IYMC. TMF has the purpose to broaden and deepen the dialogue with the Jewish community by restoring and caring for Jewish cemeteries across Poland and by educating the public about the Holocaust.
For this purpose TMF is closely cooperating with the Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland (FODZ). Like during last year’s stay the participants of the Action Reconciliation Service for Peace-Summer-Camp supported TMF with their work on the Jewish cemetery in Oświęcim.
If you would like to find out more about TMF and their very interesting activities please visit their homepage under www.matzevah.org.
