Volkswagen donates two Multivan minibuses for Memorial Site work at Auschwitz

  • Human Resources Board Member Gunnar Kilian hands the vehicles over to the International Auschwitz Committee at the German Resistance Memorial Center in Berlin

Volkswagen has donated two Volkswagen Multivan minibuses to the International Auschwitz Committee (IAC). In future, the vehicles are to be used in Oświęcim, Poland, for transporting people including survivors, international guests and voluntary workers to the Auschwitz Concentration Camp Memorial Site. Volkswagen and the IAC have been closely connected for over 30 years by their work on the joint project “Auschwitz – Remembrance and Responsibility”. During this time, about 3,300 Volkswagen apprentices from Germany and Poland have worked together to help maintain the Memorial Site of the National Socialist extermination camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau.
