Gusen Memorial Committee received High Honors from IPN-WarsawNovember 25th, 2020
We are very grateful to the Polish Institute of National Remembrance (IPN) to have been awarded the title "Kustosz Pamięci Narodowej" (Curator of National Remembrance) on November 25, 2020 in Warszaw for our decades of research and remembrance work on the former KL Gusen complex of concentration camps.
The award was handed over to a delegation of the Gusen Memorial Committee June 29, 2021 in the Royal Castle of Warsaw. The GMC specific ceremony can be watched at this Facebook link (starting time mark 1:03:18).
This award means a lot to us because Poland is one of the most important countries for researching the lost history of these large but often forgotten former Nazi death camps.
We hope that this award will also support future cooperation between Polish organizations and the Gusen Memorial Committee in order to #RememberGusen and the tens of thousands of forgotten victims.
