Fritz Bauer Forum

We explore the narratives of human survival. The resistance that Fritz Bauer called “the cost of our compassion, fighting and, as history has all too often shown, falling for a humane world.” The Forum, with its library, is a place for all those who daily confront stories of survival and remind us of human rights. Their voices too often remain unheard and their stories untold. This is what we want to change.
