Our Journey

This journey of 1913 kilometers crosses Northern Italy, Austria, the Check Republic and Poland, it will be completed in 76 days to be started on February 15th 2011 on the anniversary of the departure of interned convoy from Borgo San Dalmazzo and completed on May 1st the Yom Ha Shoah Israel’s day of remembrance of the Holocaust.

The group undertaking this project is composed by nine people: two actors and a musician will walk the entire route, while a fourth member will relay on a weekly basis to allow ten walkers to walk a section of the itinerary. The walking group is followed by a photographer a video maker, a press agent and two drivers which will head two mobile unities one in front and one in the back of the walking group in order to provide logistics support, safety, communication and announce the arrival at the end of each stage.

This pilgrimage will include some off days to allow moments of meeting, exchange, documentation and stage shows in some of local communities visited. The goal is to involve local residents and walk together for some sections of the itinerary and create a community bonded by this experience. This project will be anticipated by a round of media communication to generate attention to our goals and opportunities to meet with local community members, school classes and interested citizens while the group moves through this voyage.

The participants will write a diary inclusive of images, photographs and videos published on www.viaggioadauschwitz.eu and there will be a section open to the comments of the viitors of site.

Book crossing: at few stops a book will be given in exchange of another one to underline the significance of written literature as a contribution to the documentation of memory.

Every stage will be dedicated to one of the deportees and his/her descendants, to remember the people of the Shoah, but also the return of life.

As another symbolic but meaningful action, we intend to carry a birch tree to be planted at our arrival in Auschwitz, while during the intermediate stages we’ll provide to anyone interested to care for it seeds to plant new trees in locations like train stations, schools or community centers. This will be a tangible legacy of memory and the voyage of life.
