Living Memory

The founding of the Foundation Remembrance, Responsibility and Future marks a turning point in our culture of remembrance – the state, the private sector, and society assumed political and moral responsibility for the suffering of forced laborers of the Nazi regime of injustice.

The mission of the EVZ Foundation is to keep the memory of National Socialist persecution alive, to accept responsibility in the here and now, and to actively shape it for the future and for subsequent generations.
