Our inspiration: From Eugenie Schwarzwald to Krzyżowa-Music

The Kreisau Circle

Along with his wife Freya, whom he had met through Eugenie Schwarzwald, Helmuth James von Moltke hosted several meetings at their Lower-Silesian estate in Krzyżowa for a group of committed opponents of National Socialism. In this period of strident nationalism, the composition of this group was unique: landowners, liberals, trade unionists, lawyers, social democrats, professors and theologians all worked together for the future of integrated Europe.

The so-called Kreisau Circle stood for civil society, reconciliation between neighbouring European Nations and for creation of a European federation.
