Participation in the ceremony “75 years VVdN Thüringen”

The Thuringian Association of the Persecuted of the Nazi Regime celebrated on 8.  October 2022 its 75th anniversary.

We received an invitation, which we  gladly accepted, to participate in the  ceremony at the Buchenwald Memorial.

The festive event was opened  by Mrs. Kati Engel, the chairwoman of the association.  Speakers   included Prof. Dr. Wagner, Foundation Director of the Buchenwald Memorial, the Secretary General of the International Federation of Resistance Fighters and other guests.  The summary of the 75 years was documented by two PowerPoint presentations.

With music, presentation of honorary certificates to members for their many years of  meritorious work, followed by the Buchenwaldlied,  written and set to music in 1938 by Fritz Löhner-Beda and Hermann Leopoldi, former prisoners  of the Buchenwald concentration camp,  the event was concluded with dignity.
