Anniversary 60 years of summer camps

Exactly 60 years ago, the first summer camps took place in Magdeburg: committed people helped to rebuild destroyed churches and thus laid the roots of a very special program that combines dealing with history of National Socialism with work assignments and international encounters. Today, the international summer camps are an integral part of the Aktion Sühnezeichen Friedensdienste programme. On June 18th we want to honour these six decades of ASF summer camps by looking at the past, present and future.
