A centerpiece of our work is the building of relationships with former Leipzig Jews and their descendants. Since the year 2000, Maria Hoffmann is accompanying groups that are invited by the city of Leipzig. At the beginning, it was important to these people to visit the graves of their descendants as well as to drive to places like Prague and Karlovy Vary with which they connect wonderful childhood memories. Destinations were also places of suffering like the KZ Buchenwald and KZ Sachsenhausen. Today Maria and our daughter Judith are supporting survivors in Israel by visiting them regularly. These relationships have developed to deep friendships that led to reconciliation and healing.
