For the second year in a row we celebrated our Association’s anniversary with a trip. This time we decided to go to Berlin, Potsdam and to a “Tropical Island”. Twenty two of our members and their caretakers participated in this adventure. On our way to Germany, we took the time to visit the beautiful old town in Poznań. Our Berlin itinerary included the Museum Island (we visited the Pergamon Museum and the New Museum), a stroll down the Unter den Linden boulevard. We also admired the historical treasures and monuments of Berlin. Moreover, we had the chance to see the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag building, Potsdamer Platz [the Potsdam Square] Checkpoint Charlie and remains of the Berlin Wall. We had the honor to walk between concrete pillars that together form the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. We finished off the first day of our trip with a cruise on the Spree river. On the second day of our trip we visited Potsdam and the Sanssouci Palace in the royal park. However, the trip would not be complete without some fun, so we saved the best for last and towards the end of our we spent several remaining hours on the “Tropical Island” before coming back home.

We would like to take this opportunity and thank Mr. Jan Wardecki who generously agreed to be our tour guide/volunteer and to show us the ins and outs of Berlin. Thank you very much for the bottom of our hearts.

Zagajewski orchestrated and performed as part of the 54th International Festival Of Contemporary Music “Warsaw Autumn”.

The concert was the outcome of this cooperation. It was organized in the city’s public space – an orchestrated manifestation of opinions and demands.

Our Association can be proud of its members for a couple of reasons:

  • We were the largest group participating in the project.

  • We had the best volunteers – special thanks go to Asia Gniewosz and Maksym Klingenberg.

  • We had the most original slogan: We don’t want a fish, we want to learn how to fish.
