Origin

The project witness of the witnesses (German: „Zeugen der Zeitzeugen“) came into being after a commemoration ceremony in Berlin in 2012 on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the Wannsee Conference. Inspired by the speech of the former Federal President of Germany, Prof. D. Horst Köhler, in front of the German Bundestag (German parliament) in 2009, we called the project “Zeugen der Zeitzeugen”.

Since 2013 we have had:

  • 44 interviews in Germany, Israel and the Czech Republic
  • 52 encounters with Holocaust survivors in Schools, youth groups and universities
  • As well as actively implemented several commemoration ceremonies
