The Krzyżowa Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe together with its partners organized a conference which reflected on how Krzyżowa and other places for dialogue and meetings can contribute to the process of conflict prevention not only at national but also at European level.
In June 1989 a conference brought together different people from Poland, both parts of Germany, the Netherlands and the United States of America in Wroclaw. The event was hosted by the Club of Catholic Intelligence in Wroclaw and was entitled "Christ in Society".
The topics of the conference were opposition and resistance, youth and adult education, applied Christianity and democracy. In concrete terms, however, the participants were also concerned with saving the Krzyżowa estate, where the Kreisau circle had met during the Second World War. In Krzyżowa the visible decay was to be stopped and the complex transformed into a meeting place.
On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of this meeting, which was described by the participants as a drastic and inspiring experience and which is the birth moment of today's Krzyżowa Foundation, we organized a conference which refered to the one from 1989.
