“Stereotype Breakers”. Perception of Jewish community and culture in Poland
Magdalena Fuchs has long been fascinated by the Jewish culture and interreligious dialogue. It was only natural that her idea for the Action Project had to involve education and tolerance. As a lawyer and human rights activist, she knows best the value of teaching solidarity with minority groups and the real danger of hate speech.
We connect passionate people.
