Workshops for prison officers
Directors and officers of the Detention Ward in Krasnystaw and Prison in Opole Lubelskie participated in workshops “Perpetrators of Majdanek. Common people or fanatic murderers?” which were held at the State Museum at Majdanek on 23 and 30 January 2018.
The workshop participants had the opportunity to acquaint themselves with the history of KL Lublin and extend their knowledge of psychology concerning perpetrators and crimes committed for ideological and racial reasons. The question why common people commit mass murders provoked intense discussion which was not limited to historical issues. The participants addressed the current problem of offences motivated by hate speech and contemporary racism.
