Digitaler Live-Rundgang

International Prisoners‘ Committee: Responsibility, Democracy, Brotherhood

 |  07.05.2021  | 15:00—16:00

On the 28th of April, one day before the liberation of the concentration camp, a group of prisoners founded the International Prisoners’ Committee, made up of representatives of all major nationalities in the camp. It was an important example of democracy and brotherhood among the prisoners, seeking to overcome hatred, prejudice and nationalism. The Committee assumed responsibility and leadership for all its comrades. When the American liberators arrived, they recognized the Committee as the only legal institution to help them administer the liberated camp. It was faced with very difficult challenges. In this visit we will talk about the problems the Committee members encountered and how they tried to solve them.
