35 students of the University of Turin are taking part in the national project “Promemoria_Auschwitz”: they’re leaving to Krakow and to the old concentration camps of Auschwitz and Birkenau.

This project is supported by the University of Turin and more than 300 students of all the courses had applied.

UniTo is the first Italian university that, in partnership with collettivo Studenti Indipendenti  (Indipendent students organization) and l’Istituto piemontese per la storia della Resistenza e della società contemporanea “Giorgio Agosti” (Institute for the History of the Resistance and the History of the Contemporary Italian Society), supports this trip, not only from an economic point of view, but also through courses of study and research.

“A trip is a shared moment”, so Elena Bisacca, vice president of Deina Torino – “This is a trip through which everybody goes back to their own life looking at it in a different way. It is important to understand how to tell and make understand this experience to the local people that supported this trip”.
