He gained his first experience doing educational and memorial work during a voluntary year of social service at the International Youth Meeting Center in Auschwitz and an internship at the Jewish Galicia Museum in Cracow.

Tim Todorenczuk decided to do his voluntary year of social service at Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site because he wanted to learn about the many and varied aspects of memorial work. He regularly accompanies Dachau survivor Abba Naor to contemporary witness talks at various schools, but is also gaining experience in different departments of the Memorial Site. Something he finds particularly interesting is the contact with international visitors when he is helping with visitor information duties.
