Our foundation is in existence since 6 September 2000. It was born in
the awareness of the German League of Expellees, that it is necessary
not to remain trapped by one's own suffering, in personal, traumatic memories:
rather, it is necessary to create an instrument which contributes to the
fundamental outlawing of displacement and genocide as a political tool.
It was for this reason that an independent foundation was established.
Its objective is to counteract displacements and expulsions of peoples
all over the world, to outlaw and to prevent them and thus to create understanding
among nations, reconciliation and the peaceful neighbourliness of peoples.
The foundation has its headquarters in Wiesbaden and has been recognized
as being of public benefit.
We thank everyone who supports us in the objectives of our foundation.
