Why people need The Peace Mound Center?

benedykt_980

“…the Holy Father wishes that the forthcoming Mound will be a visible sign and the symbol of the call to forgiveness and conciliation, a reminder of the need for peace in the hearts of the people and in the world.

His Holiness commends the Polish Senior Citizens Union to God in prayer and wishes a successful completion of the project realized by them – the construction of the Mound of Remembrance and Peace. He gives from his heart apostolic blessing to all who are engaged in this work and support it. “

Letter from Vatican

…so people from every nation, culture, religion, and race can have opportunity to use The Peace Mound Center to meet and work together to realize a violence free humane life based on understanding and mutual respect can be accomplished through meaningful dialogue with each other.

Janusz Marszalek – former Mayor of City of Oświęcim 2002 – 2011 and President of the Polish Senior Citizen’s Union

… so that the up and coming new generation in Germany, whose parents came from a different cultural group will never forget the atrocities man is capable of when he loses his connection with the God given commandment to love ones neighbor.

Dr. Bernhard Worms – President of the European Senior Citizen’s Union – former Parliament Secretary

I bless with all my heart this initiative and all the People of Good Will who support this work for PEACE. May it be realized as soon as possible and may it serve all the People and Nations of the world in the future! May it help raise people’s awareness about the misfortunes of others and contribute to a significant learning from the past in order to create a better world in which everyone can live and develop in peace and for peace.

Auschwitz is the murder capitol of the world. We raise our voices to be heard.

Auschwitz is a place you cannot forget. The Peace Mound Center in the city of Oświęcim must be a symbol of life in Peace.

Tadeusz Jakubowicz – Chairman of the Jewish Religious Community in Cracow

…so that future generations can learn from the painful war experience of contemporary witnesses, that in every war many innocent people will suffer and be killed. That must not happen again after the Auschwitz concentration camp hell and after the 2nd World War. We do not need more wars! Only in peace can people live normally and develop themselves.The Peace Mound Center can become a symbol of World Peace.

Dr. Janusz Mlynarski – retired surgeon, former prisoner No. 355 of Auschwitz Concentration Camp from the first deportation on June 14.1940
