Due to the corona virus it was not possible to visit Auschwitz during this study year. In November of the following year, however, we will pay visit to the destruction camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau. For four days, from the 19th of November until the 22nd, we will visit our eyes on one of the darkest pages of human history. Together with other students, we will attempt to make sense of it. Human beings are capable of realizing enormous projects that have a positive and a negative impact on both humanity and the planet.

Auschwitz was a sophisticated and extremely efficient killing machine, where people were purposefully and systematically stripped of their humanity. The logistics that allowed this mass murder were perfectly organized and Auschwitz is known as one of the biggest tragedies in human history.

We must not forget the Holocaust. We must remember those who lost their lives so it will not happen again and. Join us on our remembrance visit to Auschwitz in Poland, the spring of 2021. It is open to students from all Dutch universities and professional (hbo) institutions.

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.
