A Guided Museum Tour with Mats Michaelsen
August 13 @ 1:00 pm
Join Mats Michaelsen, Action Reconciliation Service for Peace (ARSP) volunteer, as he guides you through the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center’s museum. ARSP sends young people to different countries in Europe, Israel, and the U.S. to work with victims of the Holocaust, at educational facilities, or with marginalized people. Their work aims at creating dialogue between different people and reducing prejudices, thus building a society for everybody. During this special museum tour, Mats will reflect on his year of volunteer work at the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center, where he’s been an invaluable asset to our work.
Mats is from Ilsede, Germany where he finished high school one year ago. He will start studying once he returns home this August. During his time in school, Mats tried to learn as much as possible about the processes that led to the Holocaust in his country and is still interested in improving his understanding of the time through different perspectives. He likes to share his experience in growing up in the society of the perpetrators but is also keen to exchange that with people coming from a different history. As a young German, he feels the responsibility to keep the memory of this horrific atrocity alive and make an effort to improve the world we all live in.
This is Mats’ last official museum tour before returning home to Germany, so you won’t want to miss this opportunity!
