Peace Road 2019, Ukraine. Project report.

20190715RivneUkraine SMIt's not the first year when Ukraine participates in the global project "Peace Road".
From 12 to 15 July, participants overcame 2,000 km from Kyiv to the city of Auschwitz.

 

The project involved 15 students from South Korea and Ukrainians as well. Residents of this country are well aware what does it mean when the nation is divided into 2 different countries. Therefore, during the trip they stopped in Lviv and at a meeting with the local youth discussed the theme of peace. Of course, they didn`t forget about the sightseeing of local historical monuments.

An unforgettable impression left the visit to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum, a former German Nazi concentration camp. This memorial includes the German Nazi concentration camps Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau. It is dedicated to the memory of the victims who died in both camps during the World War II.

After visiting this Museum, the words "peace", "humanity", "tolerance", "respect" is gaining a totally different meaning.

Also, the participants visited the Wawel Castle in Krakow and the Salt Mine in Wieliczka. During all the days of the trip students tried to understand the culture of Ukraine and Poland. In fact, taking into account 7288 kilometers from Seoul to Kyiv, Korean volunteers generally overcame 9288 kilometers to make their efforts to unite the world into one culture of peace, where Korea, Ukraine and Poland are the parts of it.
