In 2020 the World will commemorate 75 years since the liberation of Nazi Death Camps in Europe by the US Military, by the Red Army and by the British Forces. We will be part of this commemoration. In July 2020 we will be riding in the US for remembering and honoring the US Military, liberators of the Nazi Death Camps in Europe. A month later we will be riding from Auschwitz Birkenau to Moscow and back: Remembering and Honoring the 1945 Soviet army liberators of Auschwitz-Birkenau. The ride will leave Auschwitz – Birkenau on 15 August 2020 and is expected to end on 31 August 2020, at the latest. The project was initiated by Maximillian Marco Katz and it is managed by Maximillian Marco Katz (Romania) and Andre Goldstein (Germany). This ride is coordinated with the Russian authorities.
