With glorious sunshine, the 9th of November showed its most beautiful side when we welcomed our guests from Warsaw.
It was a long-planned working visit, filled with many topics of conversation, also on future projects.
After the welcome, we took part in the annual Stolperstein memorial service together with our guests, organized by the Demokratieladen Kahla. On both locations we laid flowers together and thus commemorated the fate of deported Jewish inhabitants from Kahla.
Since the topic of forced labor was an important point of our meeting, we visited the exhibition on the “REIMAHG” history in the Kahla City Museum at the request of our guests, which impressed them very much. Afterwards we went to the Kahla cemetery, to the memorial for the victims of the “REIMAHG”.
The visit program also included a longer trip to the region, including a visit to some former camps and cemeteries where Polish forced laborers of the “REIMAHG” are located.
We received several informative publications on forced labour and in exchange we handed over our publications. We found in the publications many parallels of our common history, forced labor.
We agreed to plan and carry out an international project for 2022. In the discussions we had, we were able to concretize this joint project.
We wish our guests a good journey home, who return to Warsaw with many positive impressions.
