Joining the delegation was Leszek Szuster, Director of the International Youth Meeting Centre in Oświęcim/Auschwitz, who used this opportunity to present the work of the IYMC and its cooperation with survivors of the Shoah, as well as hand over several publications of the IYMC to President Steinmeier, among them a signed and personally dedicated version of the “Christ from Auschwitz” from Zofia Posmysz.
