The Krzyżowa Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe initiates and promotes activities that develop peaceful relationships between nations, social groups, and individuals. The Foundation applies social concepts developed by the World War II German resistance group, the Kreisau Circle, by advancing European mutual understanding. We intend to encourage reflection on historical matters and to contribute to the creation of a common European historical identity. Our aim is to build communities that integrate people of different world views, beliefs and political affiliations.
International Youth Meeting Centre leads educational events aimed at bringing together youth who speak different languages and hold different world views. The European Academy, directed at adults, offers training sessions and workshops for various professional and social groups. It organizes international conferences on political and cultural issues of modern Europe, serving to deepen Polish-German understanding and dialogue between East and West. Our third project, the Memorial Place, strives to present opposition movements in the 20th century and commemorate the moral heritage of the Kreisau Circle. We also coordinate a partnership programme between twin-cities Wroclaw and Lviv and participate in EVS projects.
