We must not forget the Holocaust. We must remember those who lost their lives so it will not happen again. Join us on our visit to Auschwitz, 2-5 February, 2018. It is open to students at Dutch universities at Bachelor, Master and PhD-level. We remember by visiting Auschwitz innocent lives who perished in the Second World War.

What can we learn for the future? The people who are in the midst of armed conflicts try to save their loved ones and themselves, often by leaving their homes and searching for a place that will guarantee them safety and peace. There are people in need whom we call refugees and people who can help them rebuild their lives after many hardships and war traumas. And yet, in current political debates, we see much resistance and hear many hateful words toward those who were force to leave their countries and flee for their lives. How can we not learn from history?
