"We need places of tangible remembrance". This phrase was coined by the President of the Baden-Württemberg State Parliament, Peter Straub, at the memorial function on January 27th, 2000, in Grafeneck. This is exactly what prompted the all-out effort of the sponsors' association to acquire the building, this is why we want to keep it and make use of it for Breisach. Only the immediate authenticity of a place - and this is suggested by every experience with memorial facilities - brings history to life and thus makes it possible to learn from it.
