Educational trip Auschwitz
As a club, we therefore have an educational mission, which we are pursuing with the trip to Auschwitz. Soccer is not everything. We take it upon ourselves to develop our players not only in terms of soccer, but also in terms of character and social development. One important topic is educating and preparing young people for adulthood.
The first visit to Auschwitz took place in March 2020 and the young footballers learned a lot and were educated. Our players were very shocked to be there where many lives were taken a few years ago. Unfortunately, due to the Corona Pandemic, this year's planned visit was cancelled. Preparations for 2022 are already underway.
Through such projects as the annual trip to Auschwitz and Dachau or our corner flags in rainbow colors, our children and young people learn from an early age that diversity is great and important.
"We think that the educational mission of a sports club is more than just points and goals. This educational trip and the preparatory events, should become a permanent part of TSG's schedule. We will now do this tour every year with different players. At some point, I would like to be able to say that every player who leaves TSG for the active side has been able to take advantage of this offer. As a club, we are happy to let this cost us something," says TSG boss Solmaz.
We as a club and every single employee stand for diversity and religious freedom with our values.
A week after our educational trip to Auschwitz, two of our TSGU17 players were interviewed by the "Gießener Allgemeine" about their impressions. The two answered thoughtfully and had some thoughts about the topic, but read for yourself.
