Face to face

Youth Exchange NGO

Face to Face is an Israeli NGO who was established in order to initiate and operate youth-exchange projects between Israeli, German and Polish youth groups. The basic premise is that meeting the "Other", any "other", has an intrinsic educational value. The encounter between Israeli, German and Polish youth is, naturally, more difficult because of the joint history, but these difficulties also create opportunities to a meaningful experience. The encounter allows us not only to get to know the different culture and way of life, but it also opens the opportunity to learn history in a deeper, more diverse way, and to understand the different views and conciseness of those who are "on the other side" of the historical event of the Holocaust. We believe that the Holocaust had influenced all parts of life in these three societies, and that we need to understand those effects and consequences in order to be more aware to our identity, our lives today and our joint future. Apart from all that, we believe that youth exchanges should be fun, should include the opportunity to just get to know each other in a non-formal, un-structured way, through spending free time together.
