More information about the campaign: 

The commemorative bus Requiem for the Future is a mobile project on current perspectives of remembrance and mourning in Europe on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the destruction of Dresden by war in February 1945.

We invite you to reflect on current perspectives of remembrance and to experience our city as a place of exchange. “So that such deeds stop” was how Ibrahim Arslan, survivor of the racist arson attacks in Mölln in 1992, justified his current commitment against racism. For the survivors and contemporary witnesses of the Shoa, too, the concern for the future is always in the foreground when they overcome pain and talk about what they experienced.

Requiem for the Future is jointly organized by the open association of Dresden cultural institutions #WOD – Weltoffenes Dresden.
