On 8 September, as part of the project "8 x reconciliation", a meeting was held with Dr Annemarie Franke, author of the book "These are not enemies, these are people. Ewa Unger (1926-2020)". The discussion, moderated by Dominik Kretschmann (Head of Memorial Site of the Krzyżowa Foundation), was an opportunity to look at the history of Polish-German relations from the perspective of an extraordinary woman, co-founder of the Krzyżowa Foundation.

Dr. Annemarie Franke presented Ewa Unger's life story, illustrating it with archival photographs and documents.

By learning about this very interesting biography, we could see how personal contacts, experiences and attitudes of concrete people shaped the process of reconciliation between Poles and Germans.
