“We share a commitment to throw light on the still obscured shadows of the Holocaust.”
-- Declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust
The Foundation for Polish-German Reconciliation was established in 1992 in order to distribute financial aid and provide help to former concentration camp prisoners and forced laborers. Documenting the individual histories of Nazi victims and engaging in educational projects have been important goals. Since 2009 the Foundation has coordinated the comprehensive database project “Personal Losses and Victims of Repression under the German Occupation” extending to all Polish citizens as of 1939, among them many victims of mass executions. Furthermore, the Foundation coordinates the international project realizing archeological investigations and the new memorial in Sobibor, and partners with the Rabbinical Commission for Jewish Cemeteries in Poland in a project to locate unmarked graves of Jewish Holocaust victims.
