The Foundation Humanity in Action Poland in cooperation with Humanity in Action Germany from January 2021 to March 2022 is implementing the project "Break the Vicious Circle". It aims to deepen the knowledge of high school students about National Socialism, World War II and the Holocaust, as well as to provoke a reflection on the historical conditions that led to the Shoah, based on the concept of multiple stages leading to genocide by Prof. G. Stanton.

Why is this important? We want to restore the memory of those forgotten or lesser-known individuals who did not remain indifferent and helped others through their courageous actions during World War II.
As part of the project, we will develop a first-of-its-kind educational mobile application that will feature the 11 stages of genocide through the biographies of the individuals whom we have found through the “Superheroes and Superheroines Wanted!” contest thanks to the engagement of young people on social media.

We encourage everyone who is not indifferent to the issues of difficult history, human rights, respect and tolerance to join the educational project "Break the Vicious Circle".
The project is implemented with the support of the Foundation "Remembrance, Responsibility and Future (EVZ) and the Federal Foreign Office.

The Museum of the History of Polish Jews POLIN has assumed honorary patronage of the competition.
