We have just learned about the death of Boris Priadchenko. He passed away on September 28, at the age of 92. Like his wife Valentina, health-wise weakened since 2015, we knew, for the last several months, that he was tired.
From the 29th of September to the 2nd of October, 2017 the staff of the Max Mannheimer Studienzentrum (MMSZ) came to the Netherlands to conduct research on the Dutch memory culture of the Second World War.
"The Nazi mentality and its crimes, which left such an indelible impression on the entire world, are thus still with us and, unfortunately, are being rekindled by current events."
Speech by the General Commissioner (2s), Jean-Michel Thomas
President of the International Dachau Committee 30 April 2017.
The gate, bearing the slogan "Arbeit macht frei," ( "Work sets you free,") was located in the Bergen area of Norway after authorities received an anonymous tip last year.
The gate will not be returned to its original position at the entrance, where a copy now stands, but will become part of the permanent exhibition and it will be kept inside a transparent cabinet equipped with an alarm system.

Friday September 23 Max Mannheimer passed away at the age of 96.
More than 30 years he gave lectures to young people and adults in schools,
universities and elsewhere as an eye witness to the horrors of Third Reich and the Nazi era.
