On its history study tour through Poland, the Hohenschwangau Gymnasium just stopped in Kreisau/Krzyżowa from 17.7. - 19.7.2022 to immerse itself in the history of the place and, in particular, to learn more about the resistance group "Kreisau Circle".
The program included a historical tour of the site and workshops on the resistance group, in which the participants dealt with the personalities as well as the views and goals of the Circle. The students, aged between 17 and 18, were very engaged in preparing the talk show "A Look into the Past": they slipped into the role of several Kreisau Circle members, who were greeted and interviewed by a moderation team. They also investigated how the Circle distinguished itself from the N.S., and what references there are between the documents and the Basic Law of the FRG.
