The Circle

«President Emmanuel Macron fully associates himself with this tribute to Carl Lutz. (…) Faced with the return of ideologies of hatred and rejection of the other, France is, more than ever, determined to perpetuate the memory of all those who, at the very risk of their existence, have disobeyed by responding to their conscience, to their morals, to spare the lives of their fellow human beings.”

«I would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to the training provided by the Carl Lutz Circle at Auschwitz. The events you have presented are of crucial importance because they illustrate the role that civil society and public opinion can play when barbarism threatens.”
