At this moment, great social changes are taking place. In public life, in the media as well as in the private sphere
, hatred and discord are freely expressed and fueled. Discrimination and hatred threaten the everyday lives of our
immigrant citizens and many other people.
We, practitioners of the Inter-religious Order from around the world - members of all faiths - want to use this course to set an
example against all forms of discrimination and in all places - in ourselves, in our community, in our country and in ours
in the whole world.
At this historic place in Waldbröl, where hundreds of people have been subjected to untold suffering by the National Socialists
, in this country responsible for 2 world wars and the persecution of the Jews in the Third Reich, we become our own
suffering and the suffering of society in Take a deep look at past and present:
• We look at the seeds of discrimination in ourselves and in society.
• What can we as practitioners do to strengthen peace and reconciliation in ourselves and in society?
• How can we transform our individual and social suffering, so that understanding and reconciliation within us
