Friends Association for the IYMC

According to the statute, the purpose and the tasks are regulated as follows:

The association sponsors activities in the sector of international understanding in culture, sports, education, nature conservation and environmental protection. Particular focus is put on the cultural and political analysis of modern history for young people from all over the world - but especially for adolescents from Poland and Germany - through the International Youth Meeting Centre in Oświęcim/Auschwitz.

The main focus being the history of the concentration and extermination camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, as well as the history of the 2nd World War and contemporary history.

Dealing with history creates the foundation for contacts between young Germans and young Poles and adolescents from all over the world that are long-lasting and based on tolerance and friendship.

In order to accomplish these goals the association has the following tasks:

  • allow educational and research projects for young people at the IYMC;
  • foster scientific studies in this sector and making them accessible for the educational projects;

In order to achieve its goals the International Youth Meeting Centre in Oświęcim/Auschwitz is relying on funding.
