Youth. Europe. Music

We would like to inform you about an event which was supposed to take place in Oświęcim today. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus-pandemic, this was not possible. Nevertheless we brought young people from Poland, France and Germany together.

Dear friends

of the house, dear inhabitants of the Oświęcim region

many days have passed since we welcomed you to the Krakow Poetry Salon on March 1st. We count each and every one of them, and like you, we long for a reunion. We also think of those who cannot hide in their own homes and serve us every day - in shops, at petrol stations, but above all in health centres and hospitals. Dear doctors, nurses, rescue workers, chambermaids, without your work and commitment we would have no chance of survival as a society. Thank you very much!
