“I am a person very engaged in volunteer work and I would like to cooperate with non-governmental organizations in the future. This meeting was for me a very special event and an inspiration for further charity work. The message that we should have big dreams and not fear to realize them is very close to my own personal thinking.” (Anna Kucharska)

October 23-31, 2010 – Days of Reformation: This was a special event that EST helped to organize along with other churches in Wroclaw. The focus of the event was to remind the citizens of Wroclaw that the motivation of the reformation movement in the 16th century was the need to return to the Christian faith and also have an attitude of authentic care for other people. During the Days of Reformation there were concerts, ecumenical services, seminars and a movie. Also, there was the dedication of a wall relief of Dietrich Bonhoeffer in the Wroclaw City Hall. Dr. Bonhoeffer was born in Breslau, Germany (now Wroclaw, Poland). The Nazis executed Dr. Bonhoeffer in April 1945, at the age of 39.
