Thursday marks the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp. The football clubs and we as MAKKABI pick up on this event.
The focus of the commemoration is the participation in the #WeRemember campaign of the World Jewish Congress. We would be pleased if as many Maccabees as possible, as well as friendly clubs and associations, would take part in the campaign.
How to get involved
Print out a sign with the hashtag #WeRemember. Look for a suitable location (sporting or historical reference). Alternatively, you can also take a photo in the office. Then take a selfie.
The photos can be sent to Jerome.Buske@makkabi.de!
Alternatively, you can also send the photos to the official MAKKABI Germany Instagram account. We will also send a selection of photos to the WJC.
