Football and Remembrance Programme

We would like to welcome ESTC members the chance to participate in the "Football and Remembrance" programme on Monday 17 June 2024, providing a unique, in-depth look at the Bergen Belsen Memorial site, highlighting the connections between football and the history of the Holocaust. 

For members staying in Gelsenkirchen, Dortmund or Dusseldorf for England’s opening fixture, the trip will feature a guided tour of the museum, and a moving wreath-laying ceremony. Join us as we honour the past and inspire future generations through the unifying spirit of football.

This event has been organised by the Diversity & Inclusion team at the FA alongside the Cultural Foundation of the German Football Association and the World Jewish Congress, together with What matters.

The event will include free travel and lunch for all attendees.
