On 3 February, an agreement was signed on Malta's financial support for the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation's educational activities, in particular the Auschwitz Memorial online guided tour project.
The agreement was signed by the Ambassador of Malta to Poland Marisa Farrugia, FAB President and Auschwitz Museum Director Dr. Piotr M. A. Cywiński, and FAB General Director Wojciech Soczewica.
“This donation is a sign of solidarity towards the Foundation, and a testament of Malta’s commitment to the fight against antisemitism. Malta will continue to fully support the prevention and elimination of all forms of racism, xenophobia, and related intolerance,” said ambassador Marisa Farrugia.
Malta is the second country after the Principality of Monaco to support the Foundation's educational activities.
A special application that will allow Memorial guides to give live online tours of the site of the former German Nazi concentration and extermination camp is being developed through a partnership with Israeli companies Appsflyer and Diskin. The project should be launched in 2023.
The project is also made possible by the support of Orange, which has provided stable and high-speed wireless internet access throughout the site of the Memorial.
