Christoph Heubner (*1949 in Niederaula/Germany) is a writer, Executive Vice President of the International Auschwitz Committee and co-founder of the International Youth Meeting Centre in Oswiecim/Auschwitz. From his earliest youth, he was moved by two areas of tension: What do anti-Semitism, war and dictatorship do to people, how do victims live with their pain and their losses, their anger and their rage? Will life return to normal, at some point? What happens to the perpetrators? And, the bursting question in the disillusioned times of the already new war and the old-new hatred in Europe: Do we learn from history?

Together with the exhibition organiser and documentarian Michèle Déodat (* 1959 in Paris/France), Heubner gets to the bottom of these questions in conversations with survivors of Auschwitz and visits to the Auschwitz and Birkenau crime scenes. From pictures, memories, poems and portraits, the “Institute to remember” is created, which tells of the beginning and climax of anti-Semitic hatred. It moves between times, between perpetrators and victims, and opens up spaces for discussion so that anti-Semitism, racism, hatred against minorities and Islamophobia can be understood from the different histories of origin of those involved and can be expressed in their pain.
