Panel discussion on 30 September 2014

Memories of Noach Flug: “I remain an optimist, despite everything”

Humorous, full of energy, determined – this is how many of the participants in the panel discussion described Noach Flug, the long-standing president of the International Auschwitz Committee (IAC), during the panel discussion organised by the IAC and the foundation Remembrance, Responsibility and Future (RRF). “My grandfather was a man of dialogue,” said Boaz Levin, grandson of Noach Flug. Marian Turski, Vice President of the IAC, told of Noach Flug’s ability to seek compromise, and how he succeeded in gaining allies whilst fighting for something.

Dorota Flug, Auschwitz survivor and Noach Flug’s partner, Anat Flug-Lewin, daughter of Noach and Dorota, Bettina Schaefer, author of the book "I remain an optimist, despite everything", and Christoph Heubner, Executive Vice President of the IAC, remembered the life and work of Noach Flug in very personal accounts together with the audience.

About one hundred guests were greeted by Uta Gerlant (RRF). The discussion was moderated by the journalist Gemma Pörzgen.
