We must not forget the Holocaust. We must remember those who lost their lives so it will not happen again. Join us on our remembrance visit to Auschwitz from 1 till 4 February 2019. It is open to students from all Dutch research universities and universities of applied sciences.
We live in a world full of wars and atrocities. The people who are in the midst of armed conflicts try to save their loved ones and themselves, often by leaving their homes and searching for a place that will guarantee them safety and peace. We all would do the same. There are people in need whom we call refugees and people who can help them rebuild their lives after many hardships and war traumas. And yet, in current political debates, we see much resistance and hear many hateful words toward those who were force to leave their countries and flee for their lives. How can we not learn from history? The Second World War started for some in 1939, but many had to flee for their lives already in the early 1930s.
We invite students to remember those who perished in the Second World War by visiting Auschwitz. We will discuss the subject of refugees and war in depth. We invite you to write a reflection on this visit and to share it with your fellow students.
