Katharina von Schnurbein, since 2015 the first European coordinator on combatting Antisemitism, visited the Bonhoeffer House on the occasion of her participation in the commemorative forum on the 80th anniversary of the Wannsee Conference on 20 January 1942.
Katharina von Schnurbein on 19 January 2022 in front of the 1st panel of the exhibition in the Bonhoeffer House:
Places in Berlin with a reference to Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
We enjoyed a lively exchange of thoughts about the current significance of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s thoughts and actions in the confrontation with anti-Semitism. „Only those who shout for the Jews may also sing Gregorian“ she wrote in our guestbook. Ms von Schnurbein is very well informed about the history and significance of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, not least through her meeting with Laura M Fabrycky in Brussels and reading her book ‚Schlüssel zu Bonhoeffers Haus‘. She was pleased about the volunteer work in the house and drew our attention to funding programmes of the European Commission under the aspects of Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values (CERV). We have taken up her suggestion and are in the process of checking whether the conditions of the call for proposals of one of the various programmes could fit in with our urgent objective: to complement the visits to the House by digitising the worldwide memory and encounter with the resistance of Dietrich Bonhoeffer in the context of his family.
