ALPINE PEACE CROSSING

Alpine Peace Crossing (APC) is an Austrian organization based in Krimml (Salzburg province).

Outlook: APC 2021 – personal memories

We are very pleased to be able to present a small outlook for APC next year. A commemorative hike and a dialogue forum will take place in Krimml in 2021. The next Alpine Peace Crossing is expected to take place on the last weekend in June, namely from Friday 25th to Sunday 27th June 2021. We look forward to numerous participation in the events! Not least because the next year will be a very special one for APC, as the commemorative events will be celebrating their 15th anniversary. A good reason to take a look back in time.

Focus: personal memories
Memories are gates to history. Personal experiences and experiences are the basis for commemoration and remembrance. They make the past tangible. Therefore, next year our focus will be on life stories. We want to make the events of 1947 accessible on a new, personal level.

We ask for your help
We need your support to implement this project. Send us photos, memories, texts, audio documents, videos, life stories, etc. that relate to the historical events of 1947 or your memories of the first years of the APC commemorative events to office@alpinepeacecrossing.org.

We are looking forward to your submissions, which we will use (with your consent) both as a basis for next year’s APC in Krimml as well as the second volume of the Alpendistel.

Virtual APC “hike” 2020

The virtual APC hike has started on June 26. You will find updates all over the weekend on our homepage and on facebook.

The APC core team was in Krimml in mid-June to prepare the virtual APC “hike” 2020. The videos, photos and texts that were created in the mountains in the last few days will be published on our homepage from June 26th onwards. Even if we cannot all be on site together in 2020, we want to at least give you the possibility to catch a glimpse of the Krimmler Tauern.

13th Alpine Peace Crossing

The thirteenth reprise of the Alpine Peace Crossing along the Jewish escape route of 1947 transpired during June 28-30. Erich Czerny, the Mayor of Krimml, along with Ernst Löschner, APC Chairman, warmly greeted the attendees, their guests and other interested people during the Krimml Peace Dialog on the eve of the hike.

Grove of Flight

7 x 7 trees, 2 natural stones and 1 prism are dedicated to all people on the run (especially those of 1947) and people who have contributed to a peaceful coexistence of people of different backgrounds. The installation is a 20-minute walk from the Krimml Lodge.
We welcome the public to compose and to submit a “Testimonial” in admiration or in solidarity to those honored.
