We felt the great need to come to the place, where 70 years ago unspeakable atrocities took place. It is particularly necessary, that many visitors experience history and permanently share the responsibility, that the dead are not forgotten and it will not happen again. Your Institution, the MDSM, plays a key role in this.- those words were written in IYMC’ Guest Book by the members of SPD faction in Bundestag, who visited Oświęcim on 27-28th of September 2015.
. In a delegation took part Bernd Rützel, Steffen Claudio-Lemme, Dietmar Nietan and Metin Hakverdi. During 2 days of their staying in Oświęcim, they visited Memorial Place Auschwitz-Birkenau, laid down a wreath with the inscription “Never forget” in the Stammlager, they also visited the Jewish Center and had meeting with the members of the managing board, management and workers of the IYMC. The Bundestag members familiarized themselves with the activities of the Meeting Centre, expressing recognition for the diversity of its educational and civic offer.
