From the 8th to the 10th of July 2023, together with Giorgos Nasioula, Maria Papadopoulou and Andriani Chouliara, students of the 2022nd High School of the Arta Music School in the 2023-XNUMX school year, we made an educational trip to the Auschwitz State Museum and Memorial – Birkenau and Krakow.

The trip was organized by the General Secretariat of Religious Affairs of Y.PAI.TH.A. and the Jewish Museum of Greece and it involved an inter-school group of 32 students and 5 teachers from schools in Athens, Arta, Heraklion and Tripoli who were awarded or distinguished in the 9th Student Short Film Competition on the theme "The Holocaust and the Greek Jews".

The visit to the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum and Memorial was for us a journey through the most painful page in the history of the 20th century, dark and sad, but at the same time a shocking life experience. The images we saw, the sadness and pain we felt at the torture and murder of prisoners in the camp and the outrage at the horrific and inhuman behavior of the German Nazis will be with us in the future.

The preservation of historical memory and the fight against intolerance, racism and fascism will always be a priority of our school community.
