You can choose whatever creative form you like to explore the sensitive issues revolving around industry and the Holocaust. Out of respect for the victims and their families and to avoid abuse for purposes of anti-Semitism, racism, right-wing extremism or any form of misanthropy, the Place of Remembrance edits the dialogue. The dialogue language is English. To the extent possible, contributions written in other languages will be published with an English translation.
