Miriam’s involvement in association work
About my sister’s engagement in the context of the Deutsch–Polnische Akademische Gesellschaft e.V. (German-Polish Academic Society)
My sister also used the time she took to write her doctoral thesis in Berlin to engage in an a further academic exchange for research on the Nazi occupation of Poland and the atrocities committed there by the Nazis. The founding of the association ‘Deutsch-Polnische Akademische Gesellschaft e.V.’ with some acquaintances provided my sister with a usefl platform to network with Polish scholars until 2008. In 2009, however, Miriam returned to Frankfurt am Main and no longer used the association to implement her projects.
She accompanied her research work with activities she realized through the association. Thus, she organized conferences and always strove to support the all too necessary processes of historical reappraisal.
After Miriam’s death in 2019, the association decided to dissolve in 2020. We agreed that I would take over the content of the site to incorporate it into this site. The section for the activities of the former Deutsch Polnische Akademische Gesellschaft e.V. is now located here > https://propagandaundwiderstand.de/dpag/.
Unfortunately some PDF files were missing during the takeover, which I could not find in Miriam’s data files so far. Also via the Waybackmachine I can’t access the missing files.
Miriam’s later involvement in association work in Frankfurt am Main
In Frankfurt, starting in 2010, Miriam became involved with the association Waldwerk e.V., which strives for the preservation of the Niedwald, in the sense of the environment, environmental protection in the context of its local cultural significance. Mrs. Ursula Schmidt and Mr. Gunther Haarstark have always been dear friends to my sister there.
Miriam has also always enjoyed being involved in associations and societies and in the AStA at the university during her student days. Miriam has initiated a number of performance and art projects and has played in a classical guitar ensemble since her youth.
