Advisory Board

Our association is growing – and so are the issues and challenges. Since 2020, we have had the support of a ten-member advisory board at our side, which advises us and looks critically with us at our organisation, our strategic processes and the operational issues. We are grateful for this diverse expertise, time and support.

"With the perspective of ZWEITZEUGEN e.V. I see a chance to let the fragility and uncertainty of memory remain visible, the dependence of memory on being remembered as well as the necessity to continue this process of remembering."
