The aim of the project is to spread knowledge related to the events that took place during World War II, including topics such as genocide, the Holocaust, crimes against humanity. The project is conducted in the following languages: Polish and English. It is international thanks to the use of the Internet, social media services, streaming platforms and by organizing, among others, educational meetings, lectures, and research trips.

Historical consultations, hundreds of books read, watched documentaries and historical films about the Holocaust, camps, the Third Reich and the German Empire (starting from the Thule Society 1918 to 1945), and then the fate of post-war Nazi criminals and the history of World War II. In addition to the camps, I also visit other historical places (Wolf's Lair, the Pomeranian Wall, the site of Operation Anthropoid, etc.)

I often travel to places such as Auschwitz, Auschwitz Birkenau, Treblinka, Sobibór, Bełżec, Majdanek, Chełmno nad Nerem, Stutthof, Gross-Rosen, Płaszów, Pustków, Theresienstadt, and other places related to genocide and martyrdom. I am constantly expanding my knowledge on the subject of death camps, extermination, the Holocaust, Nazi crimes, and crimes against humanity.
