The Kreisau-Initiative was founded in summer 1989 by citizens of East and West Berlin in order to support the set-up and maintenance of an international youth meeting centre in Krzyżowa, Poland.
The Freya von Moltke Foundation for the New Kreisau was founded in 2004 by citizens of Germany and other countries who feel committed to the legacy of the Kreisau Circle and the preservation of its memory. The non-profit institution is based in Berlin and works independently without any commitment to either the politics of individual parties or the interests of national governments.
The International Youth Meeting Centre Krzyzowa cooperates closely with the German-Polish Youth Office (DPJW). Because of that, german-polish youth meetings as well as meetings with third countries can be supported financially if they conform to the Youth Offices guidlines.
Action Reconciliation for Peace is a christian-oriented organization which since 1958 is committed to working towards reconciliation and peace through voluntary services, personal encounters and active help – in particular in countries who suffered the most during National Socialism and the Second World War. ARSP is actively advocating the memory of the Nazi crimes, tolerance and peace and is engaging against antisemitism, racism and other forms of
discrimination. Today around 180 volunteers a year in 13 countries are working for ARSP. Since the late 90s ARSP is sending 15 German and since a couple of years Ukrainian volunteers yearly to Poland to work in projects related with historical education, social support for the elderly, support of people with disabilities and socially disadvantaged people. The polish partner foundation Stowarzyszenie ASF w Polsce was founded in 2009.
The Federation currently associates 92 non-governmental organizations. The main goal of the Federation is to shape cooperation, strive for joint activities and exchange information and experience. The Federation represents non-governmental organizations towards local authorities and public administration.
The Krzyżowa Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe has been a member of DFOP since 2004.
