Peace is not the lack of conflicts. We believe that our work as professionals should be devoted to learning how to live with conflicts. The first step of such a process is to learn to accept the other. Instead of projecting the own unaccepted shadows to others we believe that it is more important and effective to encounter the enemy within ourselves.
Read a detailed text of Yaacov Naor and Hilde Gött:
Our project is open to:
- students in training,
- professionals who wish to deepen their understanding and knowledge,
- others who are personally interested in the subjects “Traces of the Holocaust in the Present” and “Encounter with the Other and the Different”.
No prior experience in psychodrama is necessary.
We chose Oswiecim as our place of working because of its symbolic powerful reminder of the past in the present. Parts of the workshop will take place in a Psychodrama training institute in Krakow.
The Krakow-Auschwitz Psychodrama Project is a european based event organised by PAfE open to participants from Europe and other international countries and cultures. The language will be English with different translations.
The leaders of this project are living examples of the fruits of this dialogue. They have been involved in creating a psychodramatic space for encounters between Jews and Germans from the Post-Second World War generations.
The Krakow-Auschwitz Psychodrama Project will take place immediately after the Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow.
