Federal Minister Paus visits IYMC

On 28 April, a delegation from the Federal Minister for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth, Lisa Paus, visited the International Youth Meeting Centre in Oświęcim/Auschwitz. After the visit to the memorial site, we were the second item on the Minister's programme and she was keen to find out more about our work. In discussions with our director, Joanna Klęczar-Déodat, staff from the education and programme department, as well as our volunteers, the Minister gained extensive information about the activities of our house and our educational programme. After a tour of the IYMC grounds, the delegation also went to the Gerhard Richter exhibition pavilion, of which Mrs Paus was very impressed. She emphasised the importance of Gerhard Richter's works and also highlighted the added value that this installation has for guests of the IYMC and the memorial.
