Call for Applications

The Maximilian-Kolbe-Werk is inviting applications for
participation in an international project to be carried out in
early 2011. The project bearing the title “Remembering and
Commemorating in the Age of Web 2.0” aims to bring together
young people from Central and Eastern Europe with survivors
of Nazi concentration camps and ghettos.

Further information can be obtained from the project website.
Potential participants (up to 28 years) are requested to apply
through the online registration forms provided there. Deadline
for registrations is 30 November 2010, and applicants will be
informed of the results not later than mid-December.
