Meetingpoint Music Messiaen e.V.

managed by Alexandra Grochowski

About us

The Meetingpoint Music Messiaen e.V. has set itself to raise public awareness of the history and the fates of the prisoners of the former prisoner-of-war camp Stalag VIII A on a world-wide scale together with its Polish partner, the Foundation Remembrance, Education, Culture. Next to the POWs the history of National Socialism, the Shoah and the Second World War form the main pillars of the society’s work.
Another key to remembering the fate of 120,000 prisoners of war is the premiere of the "Quatour pour la fin du temps" by the French composer Olivier Messiaen in 1941 in Stalag VIII A, which is another point of reference for the association's work.
The joint operation of the German-Polish memorial, research of its history as well as educational work using modern formats of cultural and historical-political education with an international orientation and focus on young people, form the core of the association's work.
