Guillaume and Stéphanie Attend Academic Session

On the evening of March 2nd, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie were at the Athénée de Luxembourg to attend an academic session. This event was held in honor of the 20th educational trip organized by Témoins de la 2e Génération (Witnesses of the 2nd Generation), or T2G. Founded in 2001, T2G arranges educational opportunities for teachers and students to visit Auschwitz, as part of its ongoing effort to fight anti-Semitism and xenophobia.

Charles Goerens, the President of T2G, accompanied the Hereditary Grand Ducal couple. Joseph Salentiny, the Director of the Athenée de Luxembourg, was also in attendance.

After the session, French scholar Georges Bensoussan spoke at a conference entitled "Shoah: A memory for difficult times." Following the conference, T2G presented a book entitled As I Walk in Your Shoes and showed films that students had made during their visits to Auschwitz.

A little more information from the Cour. No photos at present, but they'll be added if they're made available.
