Ukrainian exchange students, participants in international youth encounters (e.g. work camps of the memorial sites, the German War Graves Commission, etc.), political and diplomatic delegations that come to our house, but above all our Ukrainian volunteers who worked with us for a year through Aktion Sühnezeichen Friedensdienste (Aktion Reconciliation Services for Peace), are part of a vibrant exchange.
It is also the critical discourse on history that is part of an open, democratic, free civil society. We engaged in this discourse on the relevance of history in the present with our partners in Ukraine, but also in Belarus and Russia. The war will interrupt this work, perhaps change it permanently. We want to maintain and develop our contacts in the future.
